AT&T: iPhone 5 Fastest Selling Phone Ever
As Samsung Insists Apple's Still Playing Catch Up
by Karl Bode 08:32AM Monday Sep 17 2012
Despite some yawns from analysts over the iPhone 5's not-particularly-revolutionary upgrades, AT&T says the device has broken all of their previous sales records. In a press statement, AT&T says customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model -- both on its first day of preorders and over the weekend. According to Apple, pre-orders for the device topped two-million within the first two hours of availability. As Apple fans begin lining up outside of stores and the very first orders begin to ship from China, Samsung has launched this ad insisting the iPhone 5 is still playing catch up to their Samsung Galaxy S3, a proclamation that has poured gasoline on the phone fanboy wars Internet wide.

Any story about the iPhone instantly attracts the haters.

If these phones were as terrible as some say they are, NOBODY WOULD BUY THEM. The fact is, Apple makes good stuff. Deny it all you want, but they seriously do make great products.

I plan on getting an iPhone 5, and I really don't care what anyone thinks. You like your Samsung Galaxy SIII? Great. I don't doubt that it is a great device. I personally think it is too big for a phone, but I am not going to go on Internet forums and trash everyone who wants one the way so many do on here when it comes to Apple.
