It is estimated that the first million units were sold practically in the first weekend, although some reports on this are contradictory. What is clear is that to reach that same figure, with the previous version of the iPhone, it took 74 days.
According to TechCrunch, Foxconn continues to manufacture iPhones at a rate of 800,000 units per week, as fast as possible. Businesweek, for its part, points out very similar data in this regard with an estimated production of 150,000 units per day.
Therefore, Apple seems to be in a position to sell more than 40 million units in the next year. Despite the criticism that the iPhone 3G is receiving, it is selling at a very high rate, something that cannot be questioned.
