Is there a problem with Apple iPhone pre-sale numbers in the USA and China? That’s the question being asked today in the media according to this FierceWireless piece, Sept 17.

“Speculation abounds, why are Apple pre-sale numbers so weak in China and so far not existent here in the USA? Is this a bad omen?” asks Tech analyst Jeff Kagan.

“Give me a break. How about this is simply a maturing marketplace and nothing is really wrong at all? Although growing competitive forces play a role as well,” says Wireless analyst Jeff Kagan.

“Why wait in long lines around the block or pre-order when you can simply pick up your new phone whenever you want? Think of it like a marriage. When you were dating, you couldn’t wait to be together. Years later, after you got married, that need faded. You still love your husband or wife more than anything, but you matured,” says Kagan.

“Same here with the iPhone. So let’s stop making a mountain out of a molehill. This is not a big deal any longer for Apple users. Don’t worry, they will buy. They will always buy,” says Principal analyst Kagan.
