In the United Kingdom, within 16 months about one million iPhones have been sold. This is quite a milestone for Apple, but it appears that Nokia had less trouble achieving this milestone with their N95 smartphone. The N95 reached one million sales in about 7 months after they introduced it to the market in November 2007.
?iPhone sales are continuing to accelerate.? stated Matthew Kay, CEO O2 UK. By the close of 2008, Apple had sold about 17.38 million iPhones around the world. By the end of this year an analyst claims that Apple would have sold 45 million iPhones.
