iphone-3g-white-topApple announces sales of over 1 million iPhone 3G S models in their opening weekend, an incredible feat by any measure.

Aside from the sales figures, the most interesting part of the press release is a comment from Steve Jobs himself, the first we’ve heard from the Apple CEO since his leave of absence for a liver transplant:

“Customers are voting and the iPhone is winning, with over 50,000 applications available from Apple’s revolutionary App Store, iPhone momentum is stronger than ever.”

As Apple site MacRumors report, the sales figures match last years with a million sold by the Sunday – merely 4 days after launch.

Despite incredible opening sales, there have been minor bumps, the most notable being iPhone activation problems that have lead to the company issuing an apology in the form of a $30 iTunes store voucher.
