iPhone 5: 5 Million Sold in First Weekend, Galaxy S3: 9 Million Before Launch

Tech Analyzer:

"I already hear the rebuttals: “but Apple sold more iPhones in a shorter time span than Samsung” – that is irrelevant.

Apple was very brave to release a phone just days away from it being released. It is a risky strategy which may have ccost them a little, People who buy phones tend to go on contract, so they need to know what phone they are getting in advance.
I do believe it is too early to say how well the iPhone 5 will do in sales but I think their numbers would be really close to the S3

This strategy may have worked alot better for the iPad where you are not tied to any contracts.

I still use my iPhone 4. It's my alarm clock and sometimes I watch youtube on the mobile browser late at night.
