I agree with that... I think that already raising 7.75 million plus shows that there is enough demand for the phone.

Look at how much money apple sell in a month, $16 billion and you say $32 million is too much for high-tech product?

May, 2014 is too long.

preordering is for a product that is already exist and real.

It's the same principle. Your paying upfront for a product you will get in the future. I pre-ordered a ps4. They will in the future make me one and give it to me or give my money back. If you wanna go deeper into it then it's just semantics.

In my country, with $50 one can buy over ten T-shirts with any color or words he want to paint on them lol

Don't mix up selling t-shirt with fund raising.
