“American Technology Research say the multi-function [iPhone] is likely to become the fastest selling product in Apple’s history, trumping even the iconic iPod nano,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.
“‘Our sources indicate that iPhone will likely become the fastest selling product in Apple’s history and not to mention likely among the fastest (if not the fastest) in consumer electronics,’ analyst Shaw Wu informed clients in a research report published Monday. ‘We estimate sales of about 250,000 units in two days (up from our previous view of 50,000). The previous fastest seller was iPod nano, which sold about 1 million units in about 17 days meaning, about 59,000 units per day,'” Marsal reports.
