Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 21, 2012

Are you on line somewhere waiting to buy an iPhone 5?  If so, I hope they have a few left when you get inside the store.  According to Apple, the iPhone 5 is the fastest selling iDevice in history and they are officially out of stock for online purchases.  You can order one at AT&T or Verizon or or Radio Shack or a bunch of other places, but you’re going to wait a few weeks … maybe more.  Is the iPhone 5 worth the wait?  If you’re contract is up and it’s time for a new phone, the iPhone 5 is an awesome choice.  But, if you’re just looking for great features, the Samsung Galaxy S III is actually a phone you should consider.  It’s much less expensive and it’s awesome too.  Of course, none of this matters today.  Today is iPhone 5 day, and, as I always say, “If you want an iPhone, nothing else will do.”
