Maybe Samsung can make a video of how you can sleep in on order day and still get release day shipping for their phones.

It would go well with their "Apple long lines" themed commercials.:D

Nothing like touting the popularity of other devices to promote your own.

The fact that it was sold out in an hour just means supply was less than demand. If they had 2 and got orders for 3, it would be sold out. It has nothing to do with record-breaking sales figures, yet at least. The initial supply just might have mean a lot less this year. This is no information until they quote actual pre-order unit sales. :rolleyes:

For all we know, Apple might have just held back supply to purposely say they were sold out in hour for publicity. I'm not saying that's the case, but it's possible. :)

Apple sold a boat load of these last night and anyone who thinks otherwise is just fooling themselves.

These sales figures will easily exceed that of the 4S and will probably be the largest electronic product release of all time.

I'll wait for the numbers like everyone else but common sense is your friend with this one.

Lumia 920 is more innovative smartphone. iPhone 5 is disappointment in terms of innovation.


Yeah, that Lumia 920 is so innovative that Nokia had to fake the promotional material for their flagship new feature. :rolleyes:
