It only took an hour for the initial pre-orders of the hot new iPhone 5 to sell out. If you weren’t one of the lucky ones to get your pre-order in the first hour you may have to wait a bit longer. Availability times are now showing 2 weeks on the Apple site. This is unofficially at the moment the fastest pre-order sellout for Apple’s iPhone to date – the iPhone 4S took 24 hours for initial pre-orders to sell out. Were you able to get yours? Which model did you end up choosing?

So you want the new iPhone 5 but didn’t see any pricing options for an Unlocked model? The online store at Apple Canada has posted the same pre-order information beginning Friday, September 14, with the difference being a starting price of $699 as well as information about why to “Buy your unlocked iPhone from the people who know it best”. The US store site shows only the same $199/299/399 contract pricing they announced during the keynote. There is no other information at the time on the actual model pricing, but I think its safe to assume the prices will be as follows:
16 GB – $699
32 GB – $799
64 GB – $899
Which color/size will you be getting?
Update 9/13/12 : Pre-orders will be live at 12:01 AM PST/2:01 AM CST/3:01 EST
Update 9/14/12 2:50 AM CST: While the Canadian store was still down at the time of typing this, I was able to preorder using the Apple Store App. The process was simple and took less than a minute to complete. If the store is not working for you, I suggest giving the dedicated App a try.
