0. phoneArena 25 Sep 2013, 01:24 posted on

On Monday morning, Apple announced that it had sold a record 9 million Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c units during the launch weekend and all was right with the world again; Apple CEO Tim Cook was once again branded a genius worthy of carrying Steve Jobs' jock and all of a sudden Samsung was relegated to the position of a pesky competitor to Apple...

Not surprised at all. Apple's too full of themselves to come out and say they're losing an obviously uphill battle against Android and Samsung. Why any one would do business with a company like this is beyond me. SMH

"Apple CEO Tim Cook was once again branded a genius worthy of carrying Steve Jobs' jock and all of a sudden Samsung was relegated to the position of a pesky competitor to Apple. That is pesky like a fly that keeps buzzing around your head is pesky"

LOL. Obvious troll is obvious. Seems like that was just thrown in there to incite flame wars. Samsung fanboys and Apple fanboys to your posts!

The fact is when an item ships it is a sale. Whether it is sold to you or me, a carrier or a retailer it is a sale. What is funny is how iFan attacked Samsung for the same thing saying a sale to a carrier isn't a sale. Question, if you ORDER a phone and pay for it and it is counted as a sale, how is it any different if a carriers ORDERS it and pays?

Once Apple is paid it is a sale, whether cash, check or wire transfer. ITS A SALE.\
Why any fool would have though Apple sales would be any different is beyond me.

Apple never gives sales figures for a single model of their product. It is always the family of products. All iPod sales are lumped as one, same with tablet same with phone same with Macs.

Sales is a benchmark indicating how well Apple snowed the carriers. Sell-through is a benchmark indicating how well Apple snowed the end user.
