iPhone 5 Preorders Open at Midnight Tonight
We are now less than ten hours away from the start of iPhone 5 preorders being taken online.
Tonight at midnight (PST), Verizon and Sprint will allow customers to begin preordering the iPhone 5. Although Apple and AT&T haven't yet confirmed what time they will open their respective online stores for preorders, it is believed that midnight may also be "go time."
If you want to skip out on the online feeding frenzy, Apple's retail stores will enable customers to preorder the iPhone 5 on site beginning at 8 a.m. Friday. The device itself will arrive in stores and at your doorstep (assuming you've ordered one) on September 21st.
While it remains to be seen if Apple's iPhone 5 sales will blow sales of previous generation models out of the water, next week's launch will be the biggest in company history in terms of the initial geographic reach of the device.
By the end of 2012, the iPhone 5 will be available in an estimated 100 countries.
