In one day, 600.000 iPhone 4s pre-ordered
In just one day after the official announcement of the possibility of pre-ordering of four new iPhone, Apple has registered a large number of applications 600,000.
Compared with older 3GS, the new iPhone has an application for registration of about 6 higher.
iPhone stock being exceeded demand, leading to the suspension pre-orders until they get enough stock iPhone devices. Apple apologizes for issues.
Here’s Apple’s full statement:
Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple’s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
