It took a little longer than expected but yesterday, 74 days on from launch, Apple was able to crack open that Moët it put on ice back in June as it finally surged past the million mark for iPhones sold.After blasting through 700,000 sales in the first few days, when AT&T completely sold out of its first stock, it took a while to rack-up the remaining 300,000. But last week's price slash finally did the job, as Steve Jobs snipped $200 from the asking price.Course, that left the fans who'd queued for days just to get hold of the first ones feeling more than a little miffed that they'd also paid an extra 200 smackers for the privilege – so Steve bunged them all a $100 cheque to make up for it – what a guy.Not that that's much consolation for eager UK fans. The cost of an unlocked 8GB iPhone currently standing at $800 – ouch!EssentialsApple iPhone 8GBPrice: £TBA ($400 in US)On sale: TBA (Now in US) Contact: AppleRelated stories:O2 EDGE nearer to iPhoneThe iPod Touch is here – and it's Wi-FiiPhone unlocked for everyone
