Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million Dollars

By | November 10, 2010 | 18 Comments

Skyfire Cashes in Almost 1 Million DollarsMight make Opera jealous.

With all the “problems” that plagued Skyfire for the iOS launch, the numbers are in.

According to the MobileCrunch post, a company behind mobile web browser Skyfire has sold more than 300 000 copies for their first weekend.

If we do the math:
300,000++ * $2.99 = ~$900,000

Now, Skyfire will obviously not receive all that cash, as Apple wants their cut as well (30%, if no exclusive deals were made).

That still leaves the company with more than 600,000 USD to spend on candies and chocolate.

As soon as they increase the capacity of servers. No ETA yet.
