Expert: Record preorders for Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6/Plus spark envy of Samsung, other iPhone copycats

“In the first 24 hours of preordering, Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus orders hit a record 4 million, the kind of demand that Apple’s biggest competitor Samsung likely envies,” Althea Chang reports for CNBC. “That compares with 2 million iPhone 5 orders made within 24 hours after preordering began, according to the company.”

“‘I can tell you that Samsung wishes that they had that sort of demand,’ said Mark Spoonauer, editor in chief of,” Chang reports. “‘With the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, people are getting a bigger screen, a faster processor, more enhanced camera and I think that puts a lot of pressure on Samsung,” Spoonauer said.”

      Samsung, other iPhone copycats envious of record preorders for Apple’s 64-bit iPhone 6/Plus.

      Using better words:

      Assmung, other filthy thieves, wail and gnash teeth, deny culpability, stomp feet, spread lies and spin truths over Apple’s continued success.
