iTunes sells 250m songs

By Derek Sooman on
iTunes has sold a quarter billion (250m) songs! Apple made the announcement today that their iTunes music store had reached this milestone, with a rate of 1.25m songs being sold daily. It is a figure that Apple believes it will double very soon, and is the result of two years of an incredibly successful business venture for Apple. No less than 15 countries are receiving the service, with plans to add a Japanese version of the store in March.

"When we launched the iTunes Music Store we were hoping to sell a million songs in the first six months - now we’re selling over a million songs every day, and we’ve sold over a quarter billion songs in total." - Steve Jobs, Apple CEO.
