Apple Computer said that its new iTunes Music Store, launched last week, sold more than 1 million songs in its first week of operation. In addition, the company said it has received orders for more than 110,000 new iPods, and more than 20,000 new iPods were sold in U.S. stores over the past weekend.

Roger Ames, chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group, said in a statement that selling 1 million songs in a week was “totally unexpected,” while Universal Music Group CEO Doug Morris said his company had an internal benchmark of 1 million songs sold in the first month as a measure of the store’s success.
