Verizon iPhone 4 Pre-orders Set Sales Record

I think we all knew that the iPhone 4 on Verizon Wireless was going to be huge. The phone hit pre-order for existing customers this week and quickly sold in droves and Verizon ended the pre-order offer. Verizon has now announced that it has had the most successful first day of sales for any device in the company history.

Verizon CEO Dan Mead said, “This was an exciting day. In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer – designed to reward them for their loyalty.”

A sales record broken in only a few hours, that is impressive. Apple has already said it expects to ship 21 million iPhones this quarter and it looks like that number is certainly doable. General availability of the iPhone 4 on the Verizon network will be February 10. I would bet they’ll sell out even more quickly as AT&T users jump ship.
