US sees most iPhones
The first million iPhones to be sold have seen the most distribution in the United States, capturing over 600,000 units sold, with Japan, Germany, and France following closely behind, making up for 81-percent of the million. Medialets reveals that, while the device saw excellent market penetration in all markets (between 0.33-percent and 0.45-percent, with the US at 1.07-percent), Canadian wireless provider Rogers Wireless saw a mere 0.27-percent, most likely due to activation issues across the entire country at launch.
In terms of overall carrier sales, AT&T again led the pack, with T-Mobile, Orange and Softbank following with 89-, 77-, and 70-thousand units, respectively.
Medialets states that this data is only from the first three days of sales, and that the last two weeks have yet to be considered.
