Apple sells 1.7 million iPhone 4 units in three days Apple has announced this morning that they have sold 1.7 million iPhone 4 units in just 72 hours following the device's launch.
The latest update of the popular smartphone has now become the best selling launch in the company's history.

"This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history," adds Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. "Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply."

The iPhone 4 sold 600,000 pre-orders on its first day of availability, June 16th, even taking down AT&T's servers and forcing orders to take minutes instead of seconds to submit.

Apple and a number of retailers sell the smartphone for $199 (16GB model) and $299 for the larger capacity 32GB model.

The phone is available currently in the U.S., UK, France, Germany and Japan and soon in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

I sure hope none of the 1.7 million are left-handed.
