Apple officially announced that the company sold 1 million iPhone 3G S over the weekend. Earlier we reported about Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster estimating 750,000 units.
In addition, 6 million users have downloaded the new iPhone 3.0 software in the first five days since its release.
Now there is an official reason behind the activation delays. To activate 1 million units at the same time is hard, but Apple has seen it coming as they offered pre-orders ahead of the launch day. Additionally the same issues happened in 2008.
Anyway the new iPhone has had a huge start despite not being revolutionary.
Via this Apple announcement.
On a side note:
Apple is apparently not consistent in how to call the new iPhone. In the Apple store the new iPhone is called iPhone 3G S. In this press-release Apple calls it iPhone 3GS without a space. Message to Apple: Get consistent or find a better name next time.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
