    Same thing happened to my coworker with a 4S, he preordered one from Best By and waited over a month for what was supposed to be a release-day iPhone. He never got it, had to cancel.


    Also RE:maps, google has an IOS maps app pending approval but no word on when or if Apple will approve it.

    They have already approved 3rd party mail clients, browsers and most Google apps. I find it hard to believe they would stir up a shit storm by not approving Google Maps.

    Sold the same amount of iPhone 5's in one hour that it took them 24 hours with the iPhone 4S which had already blown past their previous records. I think they will do just fine...

    That looks like someone took a key to it and forced a scratch?

    lol, no way that's real. Someone bought that shit and scratched it to stir up the crazies. Tomorrow they will use it on Will It Blend?

    Yep, that guy rocked it hard with his key (in store I think)... but it shows the potential.

    ^Correct, except for the "bought" part. They did it to a retail display unit.

    yes, i purchased shares last friday anticipating such a smash record in sales, and the share price rallied in response to that news.

    the pre-order sales numbers are baked into the share price now so im taking my profits and running.

    just curious to see how the stock reacts today and monday.
