Apple sells 1.5 Million iPhones during the first day!

A while ago we reported that Apple sold 600,000 pre-order iPhones, however now rumors are stating the actual number of sold iPhones during the first 24 hours could be as high as 1.5 million.

According to Oppenheimer analyst Yair Reiner you can calculate roughly how many iPhones Apple actually might have sold in the first day.

Here is how Reiner arrived at his estimate:

  • Apple said it received 600,000 U.S. pre-orders.
  • 100,000 iPhone 4s were at Apple Stores that hadn’t been reserved.
  • Best Buy had 50,000 units.
  • Multiply that amount by two to arrivate at international sales.
  • The survey also helped define who Apple’s real competitor is. Despite Research in Motion being the No. 2 smartphone company present on the market, if you ask most iPhone buyers they will tell you that the real competitors are the up-and-coming Android-based handsets from Google.
