Posted on February 4, 2011 by kelly maddox
Verizon announced today that yesterday’s launch of the iPhone was the fastest-selling phone in the carrier’s history. Pre-orders for the iPhone sold out at 8:10PM EST, just over 17 hours after they started.
This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer – designed to reward them for their loyalty.
