Wait, wait wait!  Didn't Apple PR reps claim Gizmondo cock blocked their sales goal??  I mean, really?  The Apple gestapo raided that dudes house with a warrant, and never just asked the poor bastard if he had the phone or not!  I have a hard time feeling sorry for Apple when they can't keep up with demand, yet blame Gizmondo for poor sales!

Sorry, what was that you said? There's a new iPhone? I'm starting to lose track.

Mr. Lilly was simply reporting on the Apple and ATT press releases. We don't have the resources to do an "instant audit" of exactly how many phones were ordered. I'm not sure anyone does. So rather than go down the path of screaming "You lie!" at Apple/ATT -- because we can't prove otherwise -- we'll just wait until it's time for the REAL referendum: a review of the hardware. All that, plus I personally don't care if Apple sells a million phones in 30 seconds: I don't have any dog in this fight.

I could be wrong but if I remember correctly the Evo had aswome sales recorded, then they came back a few days later and stated that it was an error and they did not sale as much.  Found the article...http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/sprint_overstates_firstdays_sales_evo_smartphone...I am willing to bet AT&T will do the same.

So how many of the people who pre-ordered the phone are new customers? I bet at least 80-90 percent of the people who pre-ordered the phone already have an iphone. They just want an upgrade. Now if all the people who pre-ordered the phone never had an iphone then i would be surprised but just because you have repeat customers pre-order the damn thing it don't mean shit. People are just tired of the crappy iphone they have now and just want something better.

Which only further underscores the power of the Cult of Jobs. They already have dealt with 2 years of a crappy phone on a crappy network yet they can't sign up fast enough for another crappy phone and another 2 years of crappy service.

I mean seriously, do all these people have an IQ of 35 or less???

I'm sorry but Droid OS phones will rule the US market in 2 years. With the Droid OS you can modify the OS for different smartphones. With the iphone OS you have to use an Apple smartphone. That's bullshit. Why should I be locked into one manufacter. I like the smartphones with the Droid OS. Sorry Apple your shit sucks and you are behind the times. I like variety when it comes to choosing a smartphone. Right I'm considering an Evo or Motorola Droid. AT&T sucks monkey balls so I feel sorry for the people who have or just bought an iphone. The phone sucks and the wireless carrier sucks. Wow Apple is on a roll with crap. so in 2 years it will be Blackberry based smartphones first, Droid OS smartphones second, then Apple iphone thrid.

 Apple,shmapple.  Who cares.

I'm more inclined to wonder what all this is going to do to ATT's networks.

Jon, I'm just surprised you're taking them at their word. Cause we all know it's BS.

600,000? I call bullshit. It is on them to provide proof that that many were sold. But I'm sorry, I don't take Apple's nor AT&T's word for nothing.

EVO...FTW! and apple..just get F'd...

I have to PooP!

I'm with you. I don't believe anything that Apple or AT&T says when it comes to numbers. I'm sure they use every trick in the book to inflate their figures in an attempt to build hype. Cause y'know if a million people are buying iPhones then I gotta get one too no matter how crappy they are, right?

i wouldn't be surprised if the numbers were right on. on that same note, i wouldn't be surprised if they fuged the numbers. There are enough applets out there to buy up that many of those shiny paper-weights, but i stongly dislike apple and AT&T, so i'm torn.
