Apple noted on Monday that the iPhone 3G, which went on sale on Friday, July 11, has already sold more than 1 million units. What's more, the newly-launched App Store for iPhone and iPod touch has already hosted more than 10 million application downloads. The App Store went online on Thursday, July 10.

The iPhone 3G is now available in 21 countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K. It goes on sale in France on July 17.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs called the opening weekend "stunning" 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," he added.

The App Store launched with over 500 applications available for download, many of them free. Apple indicates that more than 800 native applications are now available for download from the App Store, with more than 200 available for free. More than 90 percent of them are priced at less than $10.
