iPhone 5 Pre-Order Sells Out 20X Faster Than 4/4S, Highlights Apple's dominance

quote:

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 went live at midnight and, true to form, they went like hotcakes. You may remember that it took 22 hours for the iPhone 4S and about 20 hours for the iPhone 4 to sell out of its pre-order, launch-day stock.

The iPhone 5 took just about 60 minutes. Yep. One hour after pre-orders went live, Apple.com adjusted shipping expectations from one to two weeks due to the overwhelming demand.

The only amazing part of this is how big a deal everyone is making of this "sellout" when nobody has attached a number to it. The only bit of info all this is based on is the fact that Apple moved their delivery date back a week.

No doubt it will sell tens of millions of devices, and will probably be the biggest selling device of the year, but come on. This is hype for hype's sake.

For all the smoke, mirrors, and straw men Apple is pumping out they should have just let Obama announce this SOB during his speech at the DNC.....better yet should have let Clinton do it he night before.....that my friend would drive sales

You see sheep, I see average consumers only a couple hours after the iPhone was unveiled who may or may not follow tech news in a video edited for comedic effect.

1. Where did this come from?
2. The phone ships with a cable, why do you need to buy so many if them?
3. Monoprice will have them for $3 in a couple months.

It still proves that the average person expects basically 0 noticeable imporvements or enhancements over the phone that they currently own.......which is another reason Apple in its current form continues to strive and will for a long time.

Apple was so close in market share already, Google must be ready to pack up and shut down after Apple sold an undisclosed amount of phones in an hour.

It's also placebo effect and trying not to look stupid, especially on camera. You tell someone it's new and they want to believe and act like there are differences even though there aren't any.

I don't know, how much of a status symbol can it be if the woman buying her groceries at Walmarks with food stamps has one?
