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

I was just stating the price difference, regarding the "overpriced".
In what regards the capabilities of the iPhone 5 in Verizon, as I live in europe, i doesn't affect me.
I am, however, going to buy a smartphone soon, because my 3Gs is really showing it´s age.
I considered the GS3, but i really don't like the feel, size nor the build. I also do not like the feel of the iPhone 4 and 4S. It´s between the Lumia 920 and the iPhone 5 now.
