Apple announced that they received over 600,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders on the first day. Apple also apologized for the technical difficulties that happened during pre-orders
Apple’s press release: “Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Appleâ€™s new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.”
