And Apple does it yet again, despite many problems at launch especially the infamous antenna band issue Apple is still managing to sell the iPhone 4 like hotcakes. It took 80 days to sell 3 million iPad's and the iPhone 4 managed to sell more than half of that record in a small period of 3 days! Even though Apple is aware of the antenna band problem they have still not told customers whether a fix is in the works or whether this is a built in feature of the iPhone 4
This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history. Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply.
CUPERTINO, Calif., June 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Apple® today announced that it has sold over 1.7 million of its iPhone® 4 through Saturday, June 26, just three days after its launch on June 24. The new iPhone 4 features FaceTime®, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, and Apple’s new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video.
"This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history," said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. "Even so, we apologize to those customers who were turned away because we did not have enough supply."
iPhone 4 also features a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash, HD 720p video recording, Apple’s A4 processor, a 3-axis gyro and up to 40 percent longer talk time—in a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.
iPhone 4 comes with iOS 4, the newest version of the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, which features Multitasking, Folders, enhanced Mail, deeper Enterprise support and Apple’s new iAd mobile advertising platform.

This once again goes to show that Apple is capable of selling not only snow to an eskimo but they are also capable of selling something defective in the masses. With no chance of a recall or even a fix I really don't understand what's all the hype behind the iPhone 4.
