Despite long lines, activation problems and complaints about the high price in Canada, Apple still sold a million iPhone 3Gs in three days. It took the original iPhone 74 days to reach the same milestone last year. Of course, back then the US was the only country selling the iPhone; the million sales over the weekend took place in 21 countries. But it’s still a darn impressive feat!
When they weren’t waiting in line, iPhone owners and iPod touch users downloaded more than 10 million applications from the new App Store that launched on Thursday. The number of available apps has grown from just over 500 at launch to more than 800, including 200 freebies.
