Apple is "Blown Away" By iPhone 5 Pre-order Results
Just today, iPhone 5 units have gone on sale for pre-order from Apple and from cellular carriers. The device will be officially released on September 21 in nine different countries including the United States and Canada. The popularity of the iPhone 5 is not to be taken lightly, as the sales results thus far are staggering according to an Apple spokeswoman who says Apple is “blown away” by the sales results.

If you want to reserve your iPhone 5 unit, we suggest pre-ordering it as soon as possible before the shipment dates are pushed too far back and you end up waiting several weeks for your new iPhone.

Maybe that is happens cos it will be for Nine countries, and still there is many people wiz 3Gs, I dont think this time apple will be back like it was >>>>>> No NFC for another year Iphone 5S

Was NFC a highly wanted item?
I'll admit it's convenient, but so is a card.
Maybe that's just me.

Its always good to restrict the number of units when it first goes on sale. 'Preorders sold out' produces more headlines over 'sales are going well' any day

of course Apple is going to say great sales numbers, nobody say they have bad sales numbers on the product first day of sales. If they dare to say that it guarantee the death of the device.
Anyways I want to see the sales numbers, having the ship date pushed back 2~3 weeks really do not mean anything. Reason is because there was an article about Apple can not get enough of the new screen for the production, we do not even know how many units was ready for the first shipment. My guess it was not as good as 4S or 4, but I could be wrong.

you have to take into account the wave of iphone 4 owners who got them on launch day are all now off of contract (as it's been 2 years and 3 months roughly). we were all ready to upgrade.

The negative feedback sounds almost the same as what came from the iPhone 4S.

The only people I see whining that it looks too much like a 4 / 4s are those egomaniacs with look at me mentalities who want everyone to know they have the newest device.

The 5 is a great phone, but this time I'll pass on the upgrade. No increase in storage, and LTE is useless to me due to the fact that AT&T doesn't offer it in my area.
I'll be waiting.It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
It's where you are.
Reflect on the past, plan for the future, mod for today.

Not having NFC is not that big of a deal as the retail infrastructure to support NFC transactions is not even close to gaining momentum. Apple will support it when they think the market is able to support the feature versus having it just because others do.

I have a iPhone 4, but not going to upgrade until I hear some feedback after people start getting them and trying them out.

Why do the android trolls even come to this forum? The iPhone 5 is a nice upgrade. RandyTG is right, I've never even seen a NFC compatible device anywhere. I skipped the ip4s for the reason above, I was still in contract. Regardless of what people say, the iPhone has always been a very well built product since the start. If the lack of customizable OS features is what sends you to Samsung, that's great, just go and shut up. I'll just jailbreak my iPhone when I need that.
