“This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO.
Predictions were, that Apple would sell 1.5 million phones on release day. According to Cnet, Apple surpassed the predictions by selling 1.7 million. In comparison, Apple sold 1 million of both the 3G and 3GS in their opening weekends.
So what’s next on Apple’s agenda? That’s easy…the reception problem. We’ll see how Jobs acts on the issue. Apparently there should be a fix this week as the problem seems to be with the software.
