/// Apple on iPhone 5 Demand: "We’ve Been Completely Blown Away"
Late-sleeping early adopters may be unhappy to hear that preorder inventory of Apple’s new iPhone 5 has been depleted , but Apple’s pretty happy with the level of demand it’s seeing. “Preorders for iPhone 5 have been incredible,” Apple spokeswoman Nat Kerris told AllThingsD . “We’ve been completely blown away by the customer response.” Which was what you’d expect, considering ship time estimates slipped to two weeks just an hour after the iPhone 5 became available for preorder. Kerris offered no hard sales numbers, but if this iPhone launch follows a pattern similar to those that preceded it, we’ll likely hear some next week. For those who didn’t manage to preorder in time and still hope to have an iPhone 5 in hand on launch day, the device will be available for purchase on Friday, September 21, beginning at 8 am local time at Apple retail stores and through AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless. Meanwhile, customers can continue to order online and receive an estimated delivery date for iPhone 5.
