Im assuming there will be a certain percentage of people that will shy away from pre-ordering (as i have), and then since the ship date is now deep into July, just decide to wait it out and see when the next devices drop.
There are also a number of people who are extremely impatient (me being one of them usually) and once the new iPhone hits the stores, say screw the DINC because they can have the new iPhone right now in their hand.
So there is obviously a certain percentage of business that is lost due to the delay of shipment.
But my main question is, i was wondering if the carrier would delay releasing new devices, based on the fact that they don't believe they reached the full sales potential of the DINC just yet, since it really hasn't sat on the shelves at all. Or any similar logic?
