iPhone 5 preorders to start on Friday, Sep 14?
It looks like iPhone fans who intend to purchase the next-gen handset (which is scheduled to be announced today, if you've somehow missed that) may have to wait until the end of the week in order to place their preorders.

Earlier, there was a rumor that iPhone 5 preorders will begin immediately after the event today, but now MacRumors has overheard that Apple might take a similar approach to what it did last year, by making preorders available two days later, which is this Friday. According to the source, Apple has scheduled a significant staffing increase in its online sales team for September 14, 6AM Eastern time. Still, it isn't known if this will be the exact time when the iPhone 5 preorder page will go live, or a bit later.

While we all want to get ours hands on the latest Apple goodness as quickly as possible, we guess we should still be content with how fast Apple makes its devices available after their announcement, in contrast to what many of its competitors do. Not only will customers be able to place a preorder for their new phone just a couple of days later, but there's also a decent chance of actually receiving the product about a week later. Who plans to preorder the iPhone 5?

i would rather force close anyday instead of going to every webpage and getting a non supoorted error because of my phones inability to view webpages in flash or receiving an error because your phone has reached maximum storage capacity..please use my over priced icloud insstead of popping in a micro sd chip..or paying 40 bucks for tom tom gps because your phone doesnt have a decent and better yet free google maps...so yes i will take a force close over the iohone 4 5 6 or 7 anyDAY
