iPhone 5 becomes the fastest selling iPhone ever

It will come as no surprise that Apple’s iPhone 5 has proven to be insanely successful only a few days after it was officially announced. AT&T has announced that the iPhone 5 set a sales record over the weekend making it the fastest selling iPhone AT&T has ever offered.
AT&T reports that customers ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model both on its first day of pre-orders and over the weekend. And although AT&T didn't divulge actual sales numbers, Apple was happy to oblige. The boys from Cupertino announced that over 2 million iPhone 5 smartphones were sold within the first 24 hours of availability -- twice the performance of last year's iPhone 4S.

“iPhone 5 pre-orders have shattered the previous record held by iPhone 4S and the customer response to iPhone 5 has been phenomenal,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPhone 5 is the best iPhone yet, the most beautiful product we’ve ever made, and we hope customers love it as much as we do.”

The iPhone 5 is still available for pre-order on the AT&T network right now and is the only version of the device capable of simultaneous voice and data.
While Apple and its carriers are likely celebrating over the big sales numbers, Samsung is already looking to knock the iPhone 5 down a peg or two with new print advertising.

Every time and everywhere on the net, an Apple iPhone release always generate more reactions from Android users than any Android release phones could ever generate from Android users.

So much tantrum and whining is the Android community.

I expect Mick will post something Apple bashing this week so he could keep his job.

Congratulations! You have just won the DT Knee-Jerk post award for "Wining about wining." *

*Due to recent budgetary concerns your prize of an iPhone 5 has been cancelled. Now show us that award winning wining style.

Maybe you should learn to spell that which you loathe?

You know, I stopped for a second because I really thought I misspelled that word, but I said to myself "screw it" and just moved on. You would think I could actually have checked it against my predecessor's spelling but...

I wish they would just chill out and enjoy whatever piece of Android kit they have bought

You mean when Apple isn't trying to ban said kit?

Lets be clear. Your side started this, don't be a pussy and start with the false indignation and mock surprise at the results.

Apple did start it; that's why they sued Samsung for copying.

What's equally telling is that so many Android fans seem to feel the need to constantly rubbish not just Apple products but also Apple customers

And you don't do that too? That must "strike a cold chill in your heart" then. You better stop "talking out of your ass."
It seems as if there are deep wells of bitterness, anger, resentment and insecurity in some of the more vocal Android crowd .
Fixed that for ya. Seems to me that there are deep wells of frantic apple fanboys like yourself that are so upset every time an android fan pokes fun at an apple device that they can't even spell.
Maybe they haven't worked out yet that such behaviour just makes them look foolish.
As does your 'behavior' in your seriousness in defending a phone.

Exactly... Spoken from a guy who created his userid at Anandtech/Dailytech to champion a company FFS!. LOL.

Why anyone would waste so much time defending a company is beyond my senses.

It's what insecure people do. They feel the need to crap on others.
