Cumulative sales as of last December: 88,708,000 (for a total revenue exceeding $17.36 billion). Thus this quarter Apple sold approx. 12,000,000 iPods.
Some of these iPods were stolen, some broke and were replaced, some people own more than one, but all in all Apple has sold 100 million iPods. Most of them are in use because the vast majority, more than 90 million units, have been sold since January 2005.
