iPhone 4S sales vs everyone else

So, Apple sold four million iPhone 4S devices, worldwide, since Friday. By noon on Friday, Sprint had set a single day sales record, and by 4PM that day, AT&T had doubled it’s previous single day of sales… no doubt set by the previous iPhone.

By comparison:

  • That’s more than double the amount of iPhone 4 devices sold in the same time period last year, according to Apple.
  • It took Samsung 55 days to sell just three million Android-based Galaxy S II devices, and 85 days to top five million, according to Samsung.
  • Microsoft, in the year since launching Windows Phone 7, has sold less than two million handsets, according to two different analysts. Redmond probably won’t confirm that number since the truth is probably equally as insignificant.
I’d look up how many Blackberry phones RIM has sold, but no one cares. They barely have a functioning company/network these days.
