Last week the reviews were luke warm. The iPhone 5 didn’t seem to push the edge like it’s predecessors and didn’t create the splash that Steve Jobs helped make.
However, AT&T is reporting that the iPhone 5 has set a new sales record, with customers ordering more of them than any previous iPhone model on the first day of preorders and over the weekend.
MacAnalyst reported that Canaccord Genuity analyst Michael Walkley estimated that 10 million iPhone 5s will be sold by September 29 based on Apple’s reports that 2 million units were sold within the first 24 hours. Walkley previously estimated 6 million.
How does Apple keep doing it?
On top of that, the Apple vs. Samsung battle left many people scratching their heads as to whether Apple’s iPhone stolen patented designs. Yet despite the relatively negative comments, feedback and honest suggestions NOT to get an iPhone 5 — sales numbers are once again topping sharts. It’s just as they say…”bad publicity is better than no publicity.” Both Apple and iPhone 5 were trending nationally on twitter last week — whether or not it had a “negative” or “positive” undertone is not something we know…but from the tweets we saw, comments were cool.
