Analysts estimate that Apple has sold almost 1.5 million units of the iPhone 4 on the first day of the launch.
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has estimated that Apple sold between 1 and 1.5 million units. A quote from the research note by Gene: â€œOur best guess is that Apple reserves about half of the units for pre-orders (mail delivery and in-store pick up) and half for in-store purchases (walk-ins), implying total sales for the launch (including the 600k already announced for online and first three days) of between 1.0m to 1.5m.â€
As for Oppenheimer analyst Yair Reiner he estimated that Apple has indeed sold 1.5 million units on the first day. It’s based on, via TMO, “estimate on 600,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders in the U.S., an average of 500 non-reserved units sold per Apple Store for another 100,000, about 50,000 iPhone sales for Best Buy stores, and then multiply by two for international sales.”
iPhone 4 was released in the US, UK, Japan, France and Germany on the 24th of June 2010. It will be released in 8 countries in July, 24 countries in August and 44 countries in September.
