U.S. carrier-branded Apple iPhone 5s lead time down to 1 to 3 business days

Apple is obviously getting good flow from its product pipeline. Lead time for the Apple iPhone 5s is now down to 1 to 3 business days. These are orders for carrier branded iPhone 5s models in North America, Asia Pacific, Europe and Middle East. GSM flavored SIM-free models are still showing a lead time of about one to two weeks...

I wonder when there will be a similar metric for the iPad mini2? Not having stock on hand certainly had a negative impact on Apple's sales during the recent Thanksgiving weekend and Cyber Monday period.

Could it also be demand has slowed for the device?

That's always the case with Apple; sales drop sharply after release day/holidays. Samsung avoids this by just releasing new phones/tablets/colors every month to drum up interest. The only thing that keeps Apple in the news are rumors of their next iProducts which won't be released for another 9 to 10 months. And not to many people are excited about expensive Apple laptops/computers anymore.
I see Samsung definitely releasing the Samsung S5 early to capitalize on Apple stubbornness/predictable release cycle.

Sammy does indeed have a window of opportunity for an early release of the GS5. The rumors about the GS5 have certainly gotten off to an early start.
I hope the GS5 comes with OIS.

You would love for a story like that to be published, wouldn't you?

Still too expensive in the country outside us. Time is the the only things that should be lower down.
