iPhone 5 Becomes The Fastest Selling Phone In AT&T

Last week Apple started taking pre orders for the iPhone 5 and after about 1 hour the initial pre order was sold out and now if you pre order an iPhone 5 you need to wait 2-3 weeks. Now AT&T has just announced that the iPhone 5 is the fastest selling phone they have ever encountered. The iPhone 5 beat the previous fastest selling device on AT&T which is the iPhone 4S. Last year AT&T had 200,000 iPhone pre orders in just half a day and this year that number is expected to be higher than ever. Last year the iPhone 4S managed to sell 4 million units in the opening weekend and that makes it the fastest selling phone ever. This year the iPhone 5 is expected to sell over 8 million units on opening weekend according to analysts. We will just have to wait till next week when Apple announces the first weekend sale of the iPhone 5. This number will most probably blow the Galaxy S III sales and the iPhone 5 will reach 20 million sales in like 2 weeks and is nearly 1/4 the time the S3 took.
