Verizon Iphone Preorder

A really big start to Apple and Verizon's relationship.
Verizon said it sold more iPhones in the first two hours of preorders than it sold of any phone on a launch day. The previous record for a Verizon launch was 100,000 DROID phones in November 2009.

If this number is accurate, it could be the biggest launch for any one carrier. Last summer, when the iPhone 4 was released, Apple announced that it had 600,000 preorders, but that was with a few carriers.

For some context on how big 500,000 preorders is, Piper analyst Gene Munster (who admittedly has a tendency to miss Apple estimates low) forecasted 1.1 million Verizon iPhone sales for Q1. Apple could be half way there after day one.
