Fortune has compiled a list of iPhone sales estimates for the past quarter and although the numbers vary significantly it is quite clear that Apple is going strong.
Analysts believe Apple managed to move anywhere from 7.44 to 9.50 million iPhones in the last quarter. As always, there is a twist. Some of the numbers include the 1.7 million iPhones shipped in the first weekend of sales, while some other estimates obviously do not.
What’s more, iPhone sales peaked at around 9 million at the start of 2010 and they managed to stay very close to that figure even as the iPhone 4 launch loomed.
With Apple touting the iPhone 4 launch as its most successful product launch in history, it’s clear that Q3 sales will break the 10 million mark, especially once the phone becomes available in smaller markets and when Apple introduces the white version.
