Apple Sells 1 Million iPhones

Apple announced that it has sold its 1-millionth iPhone. The company had predicted it would sell 1 million handsets by the end of the third quarter, and with weeks to spare, Apple says it has met its goal.

The company has said it hopes to sell 10 million iPhones by the end of 2008.

Meanwhile, according to a report in BusinessWeek, Apple may be looking to bid at the FCC’s upcoming 700 MHz spectrum auction. Rumors mostly have been circulating about Google’s possible entrance into the wireless market via the spectrum auction, but BusinessWeek says that two sources are claiming that CEO Steve Jobs has studied the possibility of bidding in the auction.

The report continues to say that at least one source told the magazine that Apple was thinking that the hassles of running a national network would not outweigh the profits to be gained from no longer having to partner with network operators. The magazine’s other source seemed to think that Apple was still in favor of the benefits of dropping carrier partners.
