Apple Sells 1.7 Million iPhone 4s in 3 Days

We’re you one of the people waiting in line lasts week to get your hands on a shiny new iPhone 4? If so, you weren’t alone as Apple has released the first official sales figures for the last three days and, to say the least, things are looking pretty good.

According to Apple, Inc. the company managed to sell 1.7 million iPhone 4 units from Thursday the 24th through this Saturday the 26th. At an average of 200 bucks each, that’s a good chunk of change the company received during that time. Hey, we hate math too, that’s why we run a website. However, that adds up to at least an additional $340 Million for the three days.

Not bad, not bad at all. Especially for a company that has been declared dead at least 53 times since 1995. How things have changed.
