First Apple iPhone 5 orders leaving China now
posted by Alan F. / Sep 17, 2012, 12:06 AM
AppleInsider obtained a screenshot of a delivery update for UPS which shows that a pre-ordered Apple iPhone 5 left ZhengZhou, China on Sunday and is expected to arrive at its destination on Friday, September 21st. If you go to Apple's website, your order will still read "preparing for shipment" But if you take a reference number, like a cellphone number used when placing the pre-order, and use it to track the shipment, you should see that it has already started its journey.
Even though the phones are already on the move, only a small number of pre-orders arrive at their destination early. Most will arrive at your front door right on launch day.

At the end of the day, just remember that this site is filled with complete idiots who're convinced they're incredible smart just because of the phone they have in their hands. Always keep in mind the people you're dealing with on this site, lol. http://www.phonearena.com/news

I didn't see any news from PA that is similar to this one. Correct me if i'm wrong and please share the link of a PA news that says "s3 leaving S. Korea now" or anything similar to that. Until you can do so, your argument is invalid.

Interesting about UPS shipment. It may be a bulk shipment to a store. Individual items being sent to consumers usually go FedEx. My neighbor per-ordered the iP4S and it was sent by FedEx. Store shipments mostly go by UPS, per past conversations with store employees I have talked to.
