 Mac As mentioned above. Bandying about that 27% of 9 million figure might not be a good idea. It's a US figure only. So, unless Apple sold 9 million units in the US then... well, I'm sure you get it. Trouble is... none of us really knows anything and I doubt if Apple will ever let us in on the secret. If we call out the analysts then we have to admit that our guesses aren't any better.
 When you redesign an old model to make it new, then advertise the crap out of it while basically ignoring the flagship model... well, you can bet that Apple is banking on the 5c to perform really really well. Disappointed? I doubt it. It is selling in the millions. Wanting it to do better? I'd say yes, a lot better. Oh, by the way, that 27% figure that you use... that's US only and with a high margin of error rate. We still haven't seen any figures from anywhere else. It...
 Let me say it again. I wish they'd break down the numbers. Now, look at your reply. If I had said "should' as in, They should break down the numbers, then your reply makes sense. Just wanted to point that out. I also wish Apple would break down the numbers. You probably wish they'd all break down the numbers too.
I wish they'd break down the numbers.
  You might want to wait until November to see the October numbers on that chart. 3 days worth of data, intro data at that, doesn't tell us much about the ongoing success of a product. Especially when 2 of the carriers were selling more of the S4. If the 5c is still in the #2 spot in 2 of the carriers for October then I'd say it is selling well in the US. Hell, 41 days of data doesn't even tell us that much.
 Lol. You just wouldn't listen to the fact that it is a USA study. I have no clue about? How about the things you don't know about: 1. How many 4s units were made available last year. 2. How many 5c units were made available to the US this year. 3. How many 5c units were left in the channel 4. How many 5c units were sold in China (oh, btw, if the number jumped from 5 million to 9 million that's an 80% increase... so, if China is included and last year 2 million units were...
 One thing that hasn't been mentioned is that Apple 'can' increase production of the 5s. In contrast to all the people who have been saying that the 5s is harder to make. Sure doesn't sound like it. It seems as if the 5s is as easy to make as the 5c. Drop the production of the 5c, increase the 5s.
 So you are sticking with the theory that if Apple would not have sold units to China this year then the number of units sold would have been 6 - 6.5 million in the 3 day weekend. (for those that give a shit, I'll explain if he bites) [ a very simplified version of where I was going... Andysol is claiming that 9 million units were sold in the USA... and we all know that just isn't true]
 a. the study from your link includes everything until the end of September. b. the company that did the study had another set of figures for another study last year and in that article we learned that they polled less than 400 people from a pool of just over 6000 people. Any statistics major will tell you that if the same number of people is used for the current study then the margin of error between 23% and 27% is damn near a dead heat. c. the study from your link is U....
 Again, you are just making up stuff to support your theory. ... and the link has absolutely nothing in it to support your fantasy figures. Silly.
