Even if you aren’t Apple’s biggest fan and you don’t like the way they do business, in fact even if you don’t like anything about Apple at all, you have to give Apple credit because they certainly know how to sell a smartphone or two (or 10 million.
According to analysts that have spoken to VR-Zone, this year’s iPhone 5 launch will be the most successful ever. The iPhone 5 will reportedly bag 10 million sales in just the first week. The first 3 months of Apple iPhone 5 sales were expected to be in the region of 22 to 23 million but already analysts are upgrading this figure to 30 million – perhaps as a consequence of Apple beating Samsung in their infamous legal dispute which could force almost across-the-board sales bans of current generation Samsung smartphones.
Last year Apple bagged 4 million iPhone 4S sales in the first 3 days of launch. Apple is currently one of the world’s most valuable companies and if this launch goes as well as analysts predict Apple could be the first company ever to reach the trillion dollar market cap.
