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.

Your ability to generalize millions of people is incredible! Please, sir, tell me more about how your smartphone OS choice makes you more superior than others who choose different. I am here to listen.

I, a simpleton dumbass, do not enjoy the Android OS after having used it for two years. My feeble mind just cannot handle all of the customization that Android offers. I confuse easily and end up desperate and despaired. I run, nay, sprint toward iOS because it is the best my inadequate brain can handle. I weep at night wishing I was as smart as the average Android user.

On the other hand, forcing your brain to work harder is suppose to make it stronger. Basically the same as going to the gym makes you physically stronger. So maybe using android would help your simpleton brain out. :)
