Just a week back, on the 7th of June, the smartest device on the planet, iPhone 4 was revealed by Steve Jobs. We informed you about the pre-orders starting from 15th June 2010, for deliveries in U.S., France, Germany, UK and Japan.
Yesterday, the pre-orders for the device started and as per the latest official statement from apple on the iPhone 4 pre-orders, Apple has already received more than 600,000 pre-orders including their carrier partners.
As given in the statement from Apple, “It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions.” Apple also apologised to all the customers who were not able to complete their pre-orders as many customers were turned away by this unavailability of the services to place their orders and simply gave away ordering in frustration.
As per the statement from AT&T, the Apple Carrier in USA, this has been the busiest online sales day in the AT&T history.
As a result of this high demand, the iPhone 4 will be released in stores on June 24, 2010, however, the shipping dates at Apple.com are now set for July 14, 2010. So, what I can expect here is a long line outside the Apple stores again on the Launch day, 24th June 2010. You can subscribe to our newsletter to receive the latest updates from Apple.
