I want some chips as well. It's fun watching Samsung make these naysayers eat their words.

Did the iPhone sell as fast as this? (Just a question, not meaning to start a fan-war)

Depends. Combined iPhone sales (including iPhone 4, 4S and 5) were more at 31.5 million units, but we can't really make an 'apples to apples' comparison as we don't have an official iPhone 5 sales number to put against the S4.

In the title you mentioned 'shipment' and below in the article you said 'sold'. Which of the two is it ?

They're the same. Apple's numbers include shipped to vendors, as they sell those to the vendors and don't have access to the sales numbers of those folks. Apple can report direct sales as they also sell direct, Samsung does not.

Look at it this way - retailers ordered 10 million Galaxy S4 units the first month. If they were just sitting on shelves collecting dust, would they order 10 million more the next?

23.4 mil is a recording breaking number anyway you put it. But for whatever reason, stock market, some media and anti-samsung fans put this as a disappointment. No logic or rationality.

The same happened with Apple. People get unrealistic expectations, then get upset when they're not meet. That's the stock market through and through.

um theoretical physics states this as true however not in a parallel universe, in our own just really far away, due to finite possibilities meaning that everything is happening an infinite amount of times like im writing this an infinite amount of times somewhere and you reading this an infinite amount of times somewhere.-not a physicist just a highschool student ;)
