At least, that’s what asymco claims. We knew that there were 59.6 million iPhones and 3.2 million iPads through June; at the music event last Wednesday, Apple announced that 120 million iOS devices were sold to date. So asymco assumed that Apple sold 8 million iPhones and 4 million iPads during July and August, and they came up with a 45.2 million iPod Touches sold to date estimate. That’s 37.7% of total units.
Fortune put those numbers to use and created the following chart. If accurate, that’s impressive. In the comments to asymco report, Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt reminded us that Gene Munster reported 43.59 million iPod Touches sold through June.
The iPod Touch is really doing great.
