AT&T says iPhone 5 is its fastest selling phone, gives no numbers

17 September, 2012

AT&T issued a Press Release concerning the new iPhone 5's selling pace. The carrier declared the iPhone 5 the fastest selling iPhone on its network to date, but chose not to provide specific numbers.

The early statement is very impressive and in tow with what analysts have projected so far. The Apple iPhone 5 is expected to sell 10 million units in September alone. And it should come as no surprise as this is Apple's fastest roll-out of an iPhone device to date so numbers were expected to be higher.

Here's the Press Release itself. We hope to hear actual numbers soon from Apple itself.

Do phone brands wind people up that much? It is slightly rediculous that people on here are nearly getting into street fights about their preference of phone. It's almost as rediculous as religion.
