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.

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.
