iPhone 4 CDMA stabileste un nou record in materie de vanzari pentru Verizon, 250.000 unitati vandute?



Ieri Apple si Verizon au lansat oficial versiunea CDMA a iPhone 4, stocul epuizandu-se la doar 17 ore de la deschiderea precomenzilor. In doar 2 ore – intre 3:00 AM si 5:00 AM – Verizon a vandut mai multe terminale iPhone 4 CDMA decat vanduse orice alt dispozitiv intr-o zi de lansare. Un terminal iPhone disponibil de 8 luni pe piata a reusit sa genereze vanzari record pentru cel de-al doilea operator din SUA care comercializeaza terminale iPhone. Privind obiectiv lucrurile, clientii Verizon isi doreau de foarte mult timp un terminal iPhone si daca Apple ar fi avut mai multe disponibile atunci site-ul Verizon ar fi facut chiar si acum cu greu fata precomenzilor.

Cei de la 9To5Mac sustin ca in cele 17 ore de disponibilitate au fost vandute in jur de 250.000 de terminale iPhone 4, o cifra destul de mica in comparatie cu cele 1.7 terminale precomandate la AT&T vara trecuta in 3 zile de precomenzi. La Verizon dispozitivul a fost disponibil doar pentru clientii existent, angajatii neavand voie sa isi comande unul. Cifra este neconfirmata deocamdata, insa Apple si Verizon vor anunta probabil in zilele urmatoare cat anume au vandut si poate vor mai pune un stoc la dispozitia clientilor.

E impresionant sa vezi cat de mult isi doresc oamenii sa achizitioneze un dispozitiv care e pe piata de atat timp, un dispozitiv care costa foarte multi bani, genereaza profit urias pentru Apple si care nu este produs indeajuns de repede pe cat se vinde.


Available to General Public on Feb.10

BASKING RIDGE, N.J. – At 8:10 p.m. EST yesterday, Verizon Wireless ceased online orders of iPhone 4 to existing customers and ended the most successful first day sales in the history of the company.

“This was an exciting day,” said Dan Mead, president and chief executive officer for Verizon Wireless. “In just our first two hours, we had already sold more phones than any first day launch in our history. And, when you consider these initial orders were placed between the hours of 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., it is an incredible success story. It is gratifying to know that our customers responded so enthusiastically to this exclusive offer — designed to reward them for their loyalty.

“I am proud of our employees who worked tirelessly to strengthen and scale our systems, enabling unprecedented customer orders through our website. Overall, it was a very good day,” he added.

Mead also said customers will have another opportunity at being among the nation’s first to own an iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network.

“Yesterday’s launch set the pace for next week when we open up sales to everyone across America.”

The general market launch of the iPhone 4 on the Verizon Wireless network will occur on February 10. The company will open its more than 2000 Verizon Wireless Stores at 7 a.m. It will also be available at all Apple store locations, Best Buy, select Wal-Mart stores, and on-line at verizonwireless.com and apple.com.
