Apple issued a statement announcing that Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apple's new iPhone 4. My predictions of 1 million have not been quite reached, but 600,000 pre-orders in one day is still quite amazing.
Despite the whole mess with server delays and broken down ordering systems it is even more amazing. With that magnitude of orders we can also now better understand why the systems broke down.

The shipping date for new iPhone 4 pre-orders is now in mid-July. Consider yourself lucky if you are under the first 600,000 iPhone 4 owners.

Apple also said that it was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than the company anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions.
Apple apologizes to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hopes that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
