Steve Jobs of course unveiled the new iPhone today, and some new iPhone apps were revealed as well. However, between these unveilings, a lot of interesting statistics were rattled off, so here is a round of up of those (via this liveblogged account of the keynote).

- 5 million books, at an average of 2.5 books per iPad in first 65 days

- 22% – iBook’s market share for 5/6 major publishers

- App store supports over over 225,000 apps

- 95% of apps approved within 7 days

- passed 5 Billion downloads in the app store last week

- Going to hit 100 millionth iOS device this month (iPhones, iPod touches, and iPads)

- Apple has over 150 million credit cards (across App Stores, iTunes, iBooks)

In addition to these numbers, Steve Jobs shared some smartphone market numbers from Nielsen, which had the U.S. market share pegged as: RIM (35%), iPhone (28%), Windows (19%), Android (9%), other (9%). Numbers around this subject have been controversial for a while, and these will no doubt spark further discussion. Jobs noted that according to these, the iPhone’s share is 3 times more than Android.
