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.

Unless you never sit yourself in front of the TV, give me a break. By the way you don't have to customize your phone, you can pretty much run in the way it came.

we all know it was better to root them ;) when I was younger I loved to do all that stuff, these days I don't have time for it.

Meh, I rooted my phone while eating dinner. Most of the time spent was getting Odin to recognize my phone (which was because I needed to restart my comp after installing the drivers) and the actual installation of the rooted ROM, which was a couple minutes at best.

It might not be as simple for other phones but for a SGS3 it really is. Though, unless you really need root features it's not even a necessity.
