39,682 iPhone 5s per second

“iPhones per second” is a new measurement for speed, folks. It’s much faster than the speed of sound, but slightly less than the speed of light. Just slightly.

Some analysts are disappointed that sales over the weekend were “only 5 million”. Here’s some perspective, as I wrote on my blog. Full post with more details, here.

We can legitimately account for 7 million iPhone 5s because that’s what we’ve been given. That number, in all reality when you account for the unknown channel sales, it likely closer to 10 million.

10. Million. iPhone 5s. In its first 252 hours of purchase availability. That’s 39,682 per SECOND. So disappointing…
