Define success: 23 iPhone 5 sales a second?

If you're going to make a blockbuster smartphone pre-order splash, selling 23 iPhone 5 handsets a second for a solid 24 hour period is probably a good way of going about it. AT&T's enthusiasm about the iPhone 5 launch tipped some impressive numbers incoming, and Apple didn't disappoint, revealing the latest iteration of the iconic handset broke its predecessor's (already healthy) pre-order record. More than 2m units in a single day - or, for those of you without a calculator to hand, more than 23 units a second or 1,389 a minute - sets the bar high for the weeks and months ahead.

10m new iPhone 5 sales in September alone predicts analyst

Apple is expected to sell a whopping 10m new iPhone 5 smartphones by the end of September, analysts predict, arguing that nothing short of a disastrously unconvincing launch tomorrow could scupper the handset. Notoriously Apple-enthused Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster pegged the 10m figure, SFGate reports, though he's not the only industry-watcher to be positive about what's already tipped to be the "biggest upgrade in consumer electronics history."

As enticing as it might be right now to buy a new television, you shouldn’t do so.

iPad Mini to borrow iPod touch style tip prototype insiders

iPad Mini to borrow iPod touch style tip prototype insiders

Apple's iPad Mini takes styling cues from the 4th-gen iPod touch rather than the new iPad, sources supposedly familiar with the latest tablet prototypes have claimed, with production expected to kick off in September. Sales of the slate will begin in time to monopolize the holiday shopping season, Macotakara's insiders say, complete with WiFi-only and 3G/4G models. Even at the rumored price premium over the Nexus 7, meanwhile, analysts reckon Apple would have a multi-million seller on their hands by the end of the year.

iPhone 5 LTE release date tipped via Qualcomm shortage

This week it appears that the next generation iPhone 5 may have been inadvertently tipped by Qualcomm's quarterly earnings call via a supply issue warning for analysts tracking their mobile chipsets. The chipsets that are, in particular, seeing a strain on supply at the moment are their new 28-nm modem chips made to power the next generation of LTE speed devices. Qualcomm Chief Executive Paul Jacobs spoke to analysts saying that "demand went so far ahead of availability that we've decided to start spending more money to get more supply as soon as possible."
