Apple and Verizon Wireless Cease Taking iPhone Orders
Both Apple and Verizon Wireless have stopped accepting new pre-orders for the iPhone 4. It was available starting at 3 AM eastern time on February 3. Neither said when they might begin accepting orders again. "This was an exciting day," said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. "In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer --- designed to reward them for their loyalty."
On the flip side, looking at how many CDMA phones analysts at Apple state they're going to sell this year, I have to wonder how many were actually sold. A 7 day pre order availability gone down in 1 day sound like they got a lot more orders than expected...
Gotta LOVE that marketing...
Good news Apple critics! You were right!
Er... wait, did you say they sold out of pre-orders in 2 hours at 3AM on a thursday morning???
