China Unicom reported over 100,000 advance iPhone orders. I earlier tried to post a link and entire post was cancelled. You can Google that info and find many confirming stories. What I would like some help with, as a relatively new investor to Apple, is whether that 100,000 orders would be more or less than expectations, and how the news might impact the stock.
I think the people missunderstand the fact that iphone 5c is not the flagship. Sales for Iphone 5C will come only with time, the people must see the phone and hold it in hand. With Iphone 5S there is no problem, everybody can go to store and look for the older Iphone 5. The coloured Iphone dont have to the same sales like older Iphone releases.
Reservations started on Tuesday and within two hours, the Gold version of the iPhone 5s was sold out in the Sanlitun, Xidan Joy City, and Wangfujing Apple Stores. The latest report says that only the 16GB Space Gray model is left for reservations in Beijing and in Hong Kong. Both the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c were up for reservations starting Tuesday with in-store pick up scheduled for September 20th. The latter is the same day that both new models will be released in the U.S.
