Okay, so Apple loses. The big winner in recent memory, apparently: Nintendo.
• Nintendo Wii (released November 19, 2006) took 13 days to reach 1 million units sold.
• Nintendo DS (released November 21, 2004) took 15 days to reach 1 million units sold.
• Apple iPad (released April 3, 2010) took 28 days to reach 1 million units sold.
• Apple iPhone (releasedJune 29, 2007) took 74 days to reach 1 million units sold.
Among the fast-growing apps, all faster than the gear (no surprise): Napster, Skype, iLike, and Farmville.
