We already know Apple cleared out their iPhone 5 pre-orders well before the units could hit store shelves, but what we didnâ€™t knew back then was how many new iPhones were actually sold. Operative knew, â€˜cause now we do.
In 24 hours, Apple took in 2 million iPhone 5 pre-orders. Do the math, thatâ€™s roughly 1,389 iPhone 5 pre-orders per minute. That’s double the record the iPhone 4S set last year. And yes, thatâ€™s still just in select countries. Wow!
If they keep this trend up for the next 100 days, they’ll easily surpass the record set by the Galaxy S III. Thatâ€™s a very big IF though.
That said, it’s not exactly impossible, especially for Apple and the mighty iPhone. Itâ€™s just that the Android competition, lead by star player the Galaxy S III, has definitely stepped up their game.
And with that, care to do some betting while we wait for the results - who do you think will have the better sales record in 100 days â€“ the Galaxy S III or the iPhone 5?
