iPhone 5 becomes the fastest selling phone on AT&T beating... iPhone 4S
AT&T has just announced today that the iPhone 5 has become the fastest selling phone on the carrier beating no other but the iPhone 4S. AT&T didn’t give any hard numbers, but did say that sales of the iPhone 5 were better than all previous iPhones both on first day and throughout the opening weekend. Last year, AT&T had 200,000 iPhone preorders in a mere 12 hours, and this year that number should be even higher.

Across all three U.S. carriers at its launch, the iPhone 4S recorder 4 million sales in the opening weekend and currently holds the title for fastest selling phone.

Now, expectations are for the iPhone 5 to surpass those 4 million sales and reach as much as double that number in the best-case scenario.

So far, we’ve heard that Apple sold out of its initial preorders for the iPhone 5 and the shipping date was quickly pushed back to a week. Since then more and more preorders have come in and the waiting period for preorders has grown to the whopping 2 to 3 weeks.
