iPhone pre-launch demand strong

A survey of 100 AT&T Wireless stores — 57 corporate owned, 43 franchisee owned — has shown strong pre-launch demand for the iPhone. The survey, conducted by The Channel Checkers, also showed that 37 percent of the stores reported “pre-order lists,” while 55 percent reported waiting lists. “We continue to believe that employees are creating pre-order and waiting lists to lock-in iPhone customers and as a result, to lock-in sales commissions for themselves,” claims the report. An earlier internal AT&T document stated there would be no pre-sales of the iPhone.
