"I already hear the rebuttals: “but Apple sold more iPhones in a shorter time span than Samsung” – that is irrelevant. The reason why Samsung was able to procure so many pre-orders is because they built a “hype” for the Samsung Galaxy S3 long before it even launched. That was their marketing strategy."
haha @ apple.
Apple boarroom - "dammit. samsung whooped our asses with that knock off. any possibility we can sue em again? we'll take it. heck, we patented fastest selling devices with our iphone and they copying us again."
It's okay, Apple will create a Lawsuit for being outsold by Samsung. And probably win.
Its 360 vs ps3 all over again lol.
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.
