iPhone 5 pre-orders now ship in 3-4 weeks
If there is one thing that every single customer hates, that would be waiting. Unfortunately, that is what some future iPhone 5 owners will have to brace themselves for as the smartphone is now estimated to ship in 3 to 4 weeks if pre-ordered from the Apple store online. In comparison, the iPhone 5 projected shipping date stood at "only" 1 to 2 weeks until just recently.
So if you want to have an iPhone 5, but haven't placed a pre-order yet, prepare yourself for a lengthy wait. Sure, you can also try queuing up in front of a local Apple store, although there is no guarantee that you'll be able to buy one before they all sell out.
