Unofficial Reports Claim 1.5 Million iPhones Sold On Launch Day

by Ferman Aziz

Apple’s official statement on the first day iPhone 4 sales is yet to arrive but of course all other sources have jumped into action and staggering sales figures are flying around. According to Oppenheimer’s Yair Reiner, a whopping 1.5 million iPhones were sold on the launch day.

With 600,000 pre-orders, Reiner estimates that 100,000 additional, non-reserved units were sold at Apple stores and that 50,000 were sold at Best Buy. He multiplied the final number by two to include international sales.

Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster has a more conservative calculation: He thinks that Apple will sell between 1 million and 1.5 million iPhones in the first three days, including pre-orders.

These maybe speculation and estimates but they’re not completely off target and Apple’s previous record shows that it has surprised and surpassed sales expectations a number of times and this time might not be any different. With the kind of obsessive frenzy seen outside Apple outlets on June 24th, 1.5 million doesn’t seem like a wild dream.
