Apple issued a press release today, stating that 1.7 million iPhone 4 has been sold during Thursday June 24th and Saturday June 26th (both included).
Even though the 1.7 million units sold also includes the 600,000 pre-orders, it’s still an impressive number – and the best product launch in the history of Apple, according to Steve Jobs. iPhone 3GS sold 1 million units during its first weekend.
Press release below:
CUPERTINO, California-June 28, 2010-Apple® today announced that it has sold over 1.7 million of its iPhone® 4 through Saturday, June 26, just three days after its launch on June 24. The new iPhone 4 features FaceTime®, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, and Apple’s new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video.
“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.”
iPhone 4 also features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD 720p video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and up to 40 percent longer talk time-in a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.

I phone is the best. I’m using 3gs and like it.
I have to say that it is really a miracle in the whole history of Apple.
Its launch last week was marred by concerns over a potential design flaw that can lead to reduced signal reception, although it doesn’t seem to have affected sales.
Using iphone 3gs and satisfaction guaranteed. But couldnt find really hot differences which can make me buy 4g. But when the right time comes, budget, i will give it a chance to make my idea change.
It is really awesome, you cant believe that how much I paid for apple product, you see, iphone 4 released so I have to cancel some activity 🙁
I MAY have just the Apple store on my lunch break and I MAY have left 3 I-pads with a new home page of the Fire Wire and they MAY be on this article as we speak. I can neither confirm nor deny these claims….
