    Just saw the TIPB link. 400,000 more than the record breaking iphone4 sales. I still can't even grasp a 1,000,000 pre-order sell amount. Its just phenomenal. I remember the slow sales thread we had on here about 3 days ago. My guess was 800,000 phones.

    AT&T sold 200,000 i think. That's a pretty major part of what happened. But we also have carriers all over the world who did their part as well! I'm just happy to see Apple doing well considering the loss that they (we ALL) have suffered lately. I read that Steve left 4 years worth of products in the pipeline! That makes me really happy!

    Awesome numbers since everyone was so dissappointed at the upgrades or lack thereof in the 4S.... Apple products will always sell!

    AT&T did release a statement saying they had sold 200k in the first 12 hours.

    I'm actually surprised it was that high with the limited upgrade it was. If the iPhone 5 turns out to be a total redesign the numbers are going to be insane.

    Limited? It has iPhone 5 parts in a iPhone 4 body.. It's a huge upgrade considering the processor and graphics and camera

    Yeh it technically is a huge redesign. It just has a small 3.5 inch screen. If it came with a 4 to 4.5 inch screen it would be considered a huge upgrade by people. But I don't think Apple realizes they could have doubled sells with a bigger than 3.5 inch screen but oh well.

    I'm guessing their giant marketing department(s) didn't come to the same conclusion. lol Apple has a reason for everything they do. Wouldn't be surprised to see the 3G/3GS & 4/4S pattern continuing for several more years. Apple has to be saving cash by redesigning the shell every 2 years, instead of every year.

    Not a believable number. They sold out of 16G models, which would mean they only received 10,000 or so which is not believable.

    Not gong to happen. Apple believes this screen size is the sweet spot for mobile handsets. Sales support their position.

    I think it had some to do with it. The iphone would have sold regardless but you see it all the time when a celebrity or someone high up who endorses something passes the sales usually rise right away. Not saying this wouldn't have sold but don't think it would have as well if Jobs was still here JMO.

    Apple wants alot of stuff the public or the majority doesn't want. Apple as a whole is great. But can be better. Change is good. Any pole asking whether they want a 3.5 screen vs 4 inch screen. I think you know which one wins. I don't know who has the ability to post Polls on here. But would love to see the results out of 1,000 to 2,000 users on here concerning what size screen they want. Its been all over the internet how disappointed people were they didn't increase screen size. Its not just my opinion its the majority. Sure there are many people happy with a 3.5inch screen but alot happier people with a 4inch screen. Do you really think Apple or the public would be pissed they came out with a 4inch screen, no. Apple fought jailbreaking for years and said it bricks phones, and a whole bunch of false information too and the majority won on that.

    To add. Apple based this year off of software not a new shell design. The 5 will be a bigger screen, to many people were disappointed it didn't happen. Apple is a great company with great technology with dictatorship type heirarchy

    The sales figures don't support that statement, but I know what you mean!

    There are no sales records showing what a Iphone with a 4 to 4.5 inch screen can do. Thats my point.For example Iphone4S after release day sell 3 million. Just an example. We have no idea what those sales numbers would generate with a big display phone. In business, change is what sales more. Apples great sales do not mean the best sales possible Another note in business, is do more than your competitor. If HTC, etc would concentrate on 1 or 2 phones a year and nothing else. They could sale million phones also.

    I'll ask the guys who think the 3.5 inch screen is the best option this question. Would a Iphone4S with a 4.5 screen sell more than a 3.5 screen if the consumers had the option? Be honest when you think about the answer to that question.

    You will never see it. Apple has taken a firm stand on optimal screen size for a phone, and they believe this is it.

    I have NO desire for a phone with a larger screen. I have a larger screen. It's called an iPad. I like the iPhone because it's small, fits in my pocket, does a ton of stuff and does it well. I like the iPad for different stuff. They're both fabulous devices - just the away they are!

    I have no desire for a larger phone, but an edge-to-edge screen (or close) on the existing model's frame size would be very nice imo.
