iPhone 5 Sales in China top 2 Million in First Weekend

Apple today announced it has sold over two million of its new iPhone 5 in China, just three days after its launch on December 14. iPhone 5 will be available in more than 100 countries by the end of December, making it the fastest iPhone rollout ever.

“Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products.”

The Apple stock took a beating over the last days. It closed on Friday at $509.79. I am pretty sure that based on these record sales of the iPhone 5 in China that the Apple stock will jump today.

AAPL Down in Pre-Market Trading

The stock market does not care about the China iPhone 5 sales record. The rather listen to analysts. Citigroup downgraded the Apple shares. I am not quite sure what the concerns are about Apple these days. All indicators point to a record holiday sales season. Maybe its the fact that nobody knows how 2013 will be like. We only know that their will be new versions of existing products, but is that enough? Some say Apple needs to release a major software overhaul. Maybe that is coming in 2013. And than there is the Apple Television, but I do not see that yet as a game changer.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
