Virgin Mobile Canada halts Apple iPhone 5 pre-orders

Pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 5 have been tremendous with even Apple "blown away" by the demand. And the demand for the 6th generation of the iPhone isn't limited to the United States. A pair of Canadian carriers, Bell and Virgin Mobile Canada have stopped taking reservations for the Apple iPhone 5, citing "overwhelming success" of the pre-order program in Bell's case and "huge demand" for the device at Virgin Mobile.

While pre-orders are sold out for both Canadian carriers, the phone will be available to be purchased online and in the operator's retail locations on September 21st when the Apple iPhone 5 launches. In the U.S., the three major carriers carrying the phone have already sold out of the inventory set aside for pre-orders and there is a 2-3 week delay for those reserving the phone in the states.
"Due to the overwhelming success of the Apple iPhone 5 pre-order program , Bell is no longer accepting pre-orders past end of day September 15, 2012."-Bell internal document

The early indications are that the Apple iPhone 5 is going to easily trash the numbers put up last year by the Apple iPhone 4S.

Its just propaganda advertising just to create huge interest among people to let know that iPhone 5 is the best the world has ever known and attracting non-iPhone users to get one.

They have sold every single one of the 5 preorders they were given. Lol. Without real numbers this is just an ad, not an independent article...

Well yea it is the best wat do u think I have tried htc one x , SGSIII , and non of them I loved as much as the 4s so it's just a matter of user preference for example last year I said the same about the android phones I had but now after a conclusion I will never buy android again IOS all the way
