Ya faltan solo un par de días para que los consumidores puedan adquirir las primeras unidades del más reciente producto de Apple, el iPhone 5. Este teléfono que desde mucho antes de su anuncio oficial había dado mucho de qué hablar, estará disponible en 356 tiendas Apple, alrededor de todos los Estados Unidos, mundialmente alrededor de 22 países diferentes y a través de las tienda online de Apple.

Los números oficiales de Apple comienzan a llegar luego del primer fin de semana de pre-ordenes del iPhone 5. Luego de haberse agotado en la primera hora de su pre-venta, los chicos de Cupertino anuncian que su nuevo teléfono ha logrado la marca de 2 millones de iPhone 5 en 24 horas.

La alta demanda que ha tenido este nuevo producto ha sobrepasado las expectativas de muchos, incluso las de Apple, quien ha reportado que dado a la alta demanda, algunos tendrán que esperar hasta octubre para obtener su nuevo iPhone 5. Para poner en contexto este número, el iPhone 4S, el cual tuvo una arrancada muy buena, logró vender 1 millón de unidades en el mismo periodo de tiempo.

Como ya es costumbre con los nuevos modelos de iPhones, el nuevo dispositivo móvil se ha agotado en tiempo récord y ahora el tiempo de espera para la próxima ronda de iPhone 5 es hasta octubre. Puesto en otras palabras, muchos nos quedaremos fuera de la primera fase de ventas que comienza este viernes para quienes hayan separado a tiempo.

Analistas comentan que el iPhone 5 se han tirado de pecho diciendo que Apple logrará vender 10 millones de unidades para antes de finalizar septiembre.
