Apple sells more than a million iPhone 3GS models

Apple announced on Monday that it has sold more than 1 million iPhone 3GS models since they went on sale on Friday, June 19. The announcement also garnered the first public comment from Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a while. Jobs has been on a leave of absence since January to deal with lingering health issues. "Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning. With over 50,000 applications available from Apple's revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever," said Jobs in a statement.

The iPhone 3GS, introduced at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) in early June, sports new features including video recording capability, voice control and a built-in compass. It also launches applications faster than the 3G. AT&T's byzantine upgrade pricing structure for the phone has led to an onslaught of complaints from existing customers, but that didn't stop AT&T and Best Buy from selling out of pre-order allotments before the phone's release.

Apple also noted that the iPhone 3.0 software released on June 17th has been downloaded by 6 million customers.
