We recently heard via an official statement from Verizon that the launch of the iPhone 4 broke all of the companies previous first day sales records, although they haven’t as yet released any specific numbers.
Now according to analyst Phil Cusick from JPMorgan, Verizon may have sold as many as 500,000 iPhone 4’s on the first day when it was made available to pre-order to existing customers.
The previous record for first day sales at Verizon was held by the Motorola Droid, which sold a total of 100,000 units on the first day, and it looks like the iPhone 4 sales could be much higher.
Of course these 500,000 iPhone 4 sales are based on analysis rather than any facts from Verizon, but it does sound about right, and we suspect that sales will be even higher when it goes on sale to everyone later this week.
