More iPhones available this week

Apple Inc. is almost three-quarters of the way to its goal of selling 10 million iPhones by the end of this year after a "stunning" launch for its new-and-improved device this weekend, with new stocks hitting Canadian stores on Tuesday.

The Cupertino, Calif.-based company on Monday said it sold one million 3G iPhones, which run on faster third-generation cellphone networks, in 21 countries this weekend.

“IPhone 3G had a stunning opening weekend,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive officer, in a statement. “It took 74 days to sell the first one million original iPhones, so the new iPhone 3G is clearly off to a great start around the world.”

The company would not disclose how many units were sold in Canada, where hundreds of would-be buyers were disappointed by low stocks at Rogers Wireless stores.
