This is crazy. Verizon just announced that the iPhone broke the Verizon launch day sales record for any phone in the first two hours. Mind you that the Verizon iPhone was only available for existing customers and the sale launch in the middle of the night. Customers stayed up or got up early at 3am to secure their iPhone. The Verizon iPhone will be available for all on Feb. 9 at 3:01am EST online. Now we can estimate that Verizon has sold out a reasonable high number of iPhones in the first 24 hours.
Now I am pretty sure that Android Phones will see a slow-down in sales. Verizon was the major sales driver for Android phones in the United States. Now that Verizon customers have the iPhone choice things will change.
Apple just can lean back and smile on the way to the bank. Especially as Apple is expected to release an iPhone 5 in 2 to 3 month. I imagine that there are still Verizon customers that hold back on the iPhone purchase because of the upcoming new iPhone 5. I know, I would wait.

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.
