Attains self-imposed target of ten million units sold in 2008

Apple tastes iPhone success

Apple has shifted ten million iPhones so far this year, beating its self-imposed deadline by two months, reports Mac World.

Last quarter, with the release of the 3G version, iPhone sales outperformed all the other quarters combined with 6.8 million units shipped and outselling its closest rival, RIM’s BlackBerry by 700,000 units.

“This is a milestone for us,” commented Steve Jobs, when announcing the quarterly results. “RIM is a good company that makes good products, and so it is surprising that we could outsell them in any quarter after only 15 months in the market.”

Measured by revenue, the $4.6 billion made in the last quarter made Apple the world’s third largest mobile phone supplier behind Nokia, which made $12.7 billion and Samsung’s $5.9 billion.
