A reader of Engadget.com took it upon himself to graph how quickly various smart phones took to sell a million units. As you can see, for most units (including the original iPhone), the mean was a little over two months.
Then the iPhone 3G came out, and…well, can you say "feeding frenzy," boys and girls? I knew that you could.
Yes, the charts don't lie. It took only three freakin' days for a million 3G's to be scooped up. Seventy-two hours. By comparison, iPhone 1.0 took seventy-four days to hit that mark.
Now, for some read-between-the-lines: the iPhone 3G launched in 21 countries simultaneously whereas the G1 launched in the US only, and the Storm's numbers similarly reflect US sales only.
