Apple announced 1 million iPhone 3G, 10 million apps sold

This morning Apple announced that since the iPhone 3G went on sale last Friday in 21 countries they have already sold 1 million of the devices and 10 million applications and games from the App Store.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs points out that the first version of the iPhone took 74 days to hit the same 1 million sold mark. But, for some perspective, that launch was US-only initially so comparing the two is a bit of a marketing spin, but 1 million sold is still 1 million sold and there’s no arguing that it’s an impressive number.

Even yesterday there were still 30-60 mine lines at many Apple stores for those still waiting to buy their own iPhone 3G.

By next weekend I wonder what the number sold will be. 1.5 million? 2 million?
