iPhone 5 could hit 6M in sales in launch weekend, says analyst

iPhone 5 is thinner, lighter, faster

Can Apple beat its previous record for opening weekend iPhone sales? Analyst Horace Dediu thinks so.

Stirring around some facts and figures, the Asymco analyst projects first-weekend iPhone 5 sales as high as 6 million. In contrast, the iPhone 4S saw sales of 4 million in its first three days, the iPhone 4 saw sales of 1.7 million, and the iPhone 3GS sales of around 1 million.

Unveiled yesterday and reaching consumers September 21, the iPhone 5 will likely attract more upgraders than new buyers over the initial weekend, according to Dediu

“There might be first time buyers, but the dedication required to ensure being first to have it usually means buyers are keen on the brand and are repeat customers,” the analyst said.
