iPhone growth certainly hasn’t slowed.  AT&T released its quarterly earnings report today and among the announcements was the activation of 3.2 million iPhones in the quarter.  That, not only was a new quarterly record, it was 3/4ths the total of 4.3 million postpaid 3G integrated wireless devices (devices with keyboards – or "smartphones") that AT&T sold.  Incredible. 

4.3 million postpaid 3G integrated wireless devices added to AT&T’s network, the largest quarterly increase in the company’s history; integrated device growth included 3.2 million iPhone activations, also the company’s largest quarterly total to date (integrated devices are handsets with QWERTY or virtual keyboards in addition to voice functionality)

Also, similar to recent quarters, 40 percent of the iPhone activations were for customers who were new to AT&T.

Apple sold 7.4 million devices in the quarter so around 4.2 million were sold internationally.
