ATT says that it’s already received 200,000 orders in its first 12 hours on sale, calling it “the most successful iPhone launch we’ve ever had.”
But the day’s only half over, and this time Apple has three carriers instead of just one.
Apple unveiled the phone on Tuesday. It got some criticism for being a relatively minor upgrade — a lot of folks were expecting an iPhone 5 with a brand new form factor. But there was really no business reason for Apple to shake things up too much, since the iPhone 4 has been such a hit, with sales steadily increasing every quarter since it went on sale.
