With the Apple press conference behind us we have some news to report besides all the iphone 4 antenna issues. Steve Jobs confirmed today that Apple in just 22 days have sold 3 million iPhone 4’s, this sounds quite impressive but Google announced they are activating 160,000 Android handsets a day. This over the same period totals over 3.5 million sold.
Seth Weintraub from CNNMoney.com is reporting in an article that these figures do not include sales of previous iPhone models Apple is selling, so we can’t know for sure the total numbers of iPhones that are actually being sold.
In the first few days of launch Apple sold 1.7 million iPhone 4’s, but only 1.3 million was sold in the next 19 days. This works out at around 70,000 units per day which is less than half of those on Android. This could have something to do with the low stock levels of the iPhone 4 and no white version until the end of July.
It might be difficult for Apple to match Android’s figures if they can’t beat their rivals weekly totals at its annual iPhone launch. But we will not know for sure who is selling the most handsets.
