OK, folks, the official numbers are in, and it looks like it has been another record-shattering launch for Apple. The iPhone 5, which became available for pre-order on September 12, has been pre-ordered more than 2 million times during the first 24 hours...

I think I hear fandroids holding protests in Cupertino demanding those numbers proved because there is no way it's possible with such an inferior phone to their Samsung. Cnbc is reporting it. Oh wait, it's the 1 year anniversary of occupy wall street, never mind. I'll call tmz to alert them it will be coming.

GET OVER IT--APPLE IS KING.

It's scary how numbers keep going up for Apple....I am an iPhone user and I got mine to be delivered this Friday but at some point, everyone falls from the top.

Until then....long live iPhone.

It is normal. This is a great phone with innovation, the camera has a feature named 'panorama'

Its about time these idiots realized they could have the phone delivered to them instead of standing in line for days at a time. But that's only due to Apples inventing pre-orders.

I had no delusion that the iPhone would not sell (Millions in seconds). For me it is not what I consider a big leap factor over the iPhone 4 or 4s. it offers nothing new to me. But to millions of others it is their device of choice so I will not fault them. I too was once an iPhone user and enjoyed it for getting the job done at that point of time for me. Today, for me, I need something that offers customization and options to a greater degree.

I enjoy that with my current device (S2 Skyrocket) and I know that iPhone 5 users will enjoy their device. My only concern is that Apple as a company would stop the endless lawsuits and banning against all other manufactures and just sell it's phone ( as no matter what they sell) Apple is a great at what it does so well - Marketing.

"According to the company, it is the new features like the refined design, bigger, 4" screen, A6 system chip and iOS 6, which have attracted customers to the new handset."

This is kinda funny to me because although it does have a bigger screen and faster chip........IT STILL IS RUNNING IOS!!! do they know what that means?? it means their is STILLL NOO customization in it..........do they know what makes android soo much better than the iphone?..........not bigger screens and larger batteries........BUT THE OPERATING SYSTEM! and the freedom to customize the phone they way you want it to be......Apple could have made the phone 4.3 inches and had a quad core chip in it.......AND I STILL WOULD NOOOOOT BUY IT..........im being serious man, i dont like android for the bigger screens, actually most of the time i get pissed off because i cant find a top notch android phone with a decent size like 4.3 inches because they are mostly the same size as the HTC One X and the Galaxy S3........thats why im waiting on these xperia phones by sony, because like i been saying for awhile now........they have Beauty, Power, the V is even water proof! they all have great cameras made by sony........the TX and V have removable batteries this time around (thank God).........So there is NOOOOO way i will ever choose an apple iphone with these bad boys about to come out..........and even if they werent coming out i still wouldnt choose apple because it lacks an IN DEPTH operating system...........jus the way it is, and i hope people come to realize that soon because its not always all about "beauty" (like the only real thing iphone has) but its about finding a phone that has it ALL! that way you really dont have to worry about what the next phone is because you know youve made the best choice possible........peace

wow i went the the mall and i really can't believe how many people were waiting in line. i sure as hell would not wait in line if i wanted the device i will wait... the nice thing about being patient also research the product before you give your money away.. if i were to buy one i would most likely get a unlock iPhone but the price for the 4 version is still mind boggling plus i love my Galaxy Nexus though if a Xperia Nexus Comes out im jumping on that ship haha love Sony design way better then apple design in my opinion.
