Apple took huge orders for its iPhone 4 on Tuesday. The company has said that on that day it took more than 600,000 orders of the new smartphone. These orders were despite some computer hiccups that the company faced in AT&T stores through which the sales were made.
In an statement Apple has said, “It was the largest number of preorders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions,”
These great sales figures are particularly pleasing for the investors who have now pushed the Apple shares up to by 3 percent on Wednesday. The share was pegged at $267 on that day.
