Wow, just in one day over 600,000 iPhone 4 units were pre-ordered. Most of us know first hand what it was like trying to click through the pre-order pages.
Well, in Apple's new press release, they apologized to all the people that attempted to pre-order yesterday:
Yesterday Apple and its carrier partners took pre-orders for more than 600,000 of Apples new iPhone 4. It was the largest number of pre-orders Apple has ever taken in a single day and was far higher than we anticipated, resulting in many order and approval system malfunctions. Many customers were turned away or abandoned the process in frustration. We apologize to everyone who encountered difficulties, and hope that they will try again or visit an Apple or carrier store once the iPhone 4 is in stock.
Hopefully there won't be another system meltdown on launch day.
