Yes, another iPhone related post! I put off ordering my new Apple iPhone 5 this morning and after reading an article on the HuffingtonPost.com a few minutes ago, I will have to pay with my valuable time (time = money). The article reports that Apple sold out of their entire stock for the new iPhone 5 within an hour. I also read in another article that Verizon has pushed back the ship date if ordered through them till September 26th.
According to Business Insider, about one hour after the iPhone 5 pre-orders were made available to the public (at 12:01 a.m. PT on September 14), the entire stock was sold out. Shipping estimates on the company’s site now currently say it will take at least two weeks to deliver phones in the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia, and Germany.
If you weren’t one of the lucky few who could access the Apple Store last night, and you’re concerned cellphone carriers won’t make good on the promised release date, then prepare to wait a few weeks or get ready to camp out in front of an Apple Store on the September 21st release date.
