Apple Took More Than 600,000 iPhone 4 Pre-orders Yesterday

Apple has issued a statement apologizing for the pre-order disaster yesterday saying the number was far higher than anticipated.

Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple'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.

Hey Apple: How about a discount for the inconveniences caused? Better yet, put a foot in ATT's ass for better service OR contract a 2nd service provider to create competition. In fairness, ATT is partly to blame for yesterday's fiasco, as well!

So let's get this straight: The greatest achievement in all of mankind is available for preorder on June 14th; It's only $200 for almost everyone; It's available from Apple, AT&T, Best Buy, Radio Shack, and Walmart; There are 6 billion people on earth; But 600,000 preorders was beyond our wildest expectations. Sorry we flubbed it up.
