San Francisco: Apple shares hit a record high Monday, crossing the US$700 (RM 2,141) mark for the first time after the company said it notched a record two million pre-orders for its iPhone 5 in the first 24 hours the smartphone was on sale.
A poll of analyst by Bloomberg News yielded an average estimate of 58 million iPhones sold by the year end , which would mean revenue of more than US$36 million for Apple, the world`s most valuable company. The new phone will be available for purchase Friday.
