Verizon iPhone Breaks Sales Records Within Two Hours

Preorders for Verizon customers opened yesterday and, as of 8:10 p.m. last night, they’ve been sold out. According to Verizon, the Thursday morning launch moved more units than in any previous phone launch. All this happened in a mere two hours.

If you were lucky enough to get your order in before they shut it down, you may have already received an email from Verizon about the shipment of your shiny new CDMA iPhone. According to Engadget, the estimated delivery date is February 7th, “a whole 72 hours before everyone else gets it.”

If you didn’t snatch one today, you’ll have another chance to get your order in online at 3:01 AM on February 9th. You can also hit up the stores on the 10th, which will probably involve American Idol-style lines and waiting. There might be camping involved.

Did you already get your order in, going camping, or waiting to see how it all turns out?
