Regardless of your thoughts on the iPhone 5, one thing seems rather clear — it has been selling well. Well, at least in the pre-order stage anyway. We saw the news from Apple and along with that comes word from AT&T. In fact, the carrier has dubbed this the “most successful iPhone launch ever.” But on that note, given we already mentioned the record breaking news from Apple, this AT&T news comes with a bit less in terms of a surprise. Anyway, AT&T did not provide anything in terms of numbers. Instead they stated that the iPhone 5 created a new sales record and has become the fastest selling iPhone they have ever offered. They also took the opportunity to remind everyone that pre-orders are still available and that they will be opening at 8AM local time on September 21 for actual sales.
