Sales hit the 1 million-mark on the 28th day after its debut in the U.S. on April 3, and the 2 million-mark on the 59th day. With the device's recent release in overseas markets such as Japan and France, sales are speeding up, the magazine reported.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs said, "We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people around the world, including those in nine more countries next month."
