Despite the issues that plague the iPhone 4 at launch, namely the dodgy reception, appearance of yellow bands and spots on the screen, and the lack of white iPhone models, Apple still managed to sell a whopping 1.7 million iPhone 4 models in the three days since its launch. This makes it Apple's best product launch ever.
Ars Technica - "This is the most successful product launch in Apple’s history," said Apple CEO Steve Jobs in a statement. Still, the success came in spite of some problems, including issues with AT&T's servers which prevented many customers from making successful pre-orders, having no white models available at launch, and supply that was easily outstripped by demand.
