Apple "Starting today, Walmart has dropped prices on both the iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S, with the 16 GB iPhone 5 now on sale for just $127 and the iPhone 4S coming in at $47." I'm sure a 33% price cut right ahead of the holidays is totally normal for a product of which demand outstrips supply. Right?

How many of the Chinese population are little children, elderly, illiterate, poor, not in China, in prison, insane or in (undiscovered) remote areas?

Selling 2 million expensive luxury devices over a single weekend is pretty good by any standard.
