iPhone 5 is already best-selling smart phone, ever

Posted: Updated:

The iPhone 5 is already a best-seller, with a record two million pre-sale orders -- but some analysts say this could be the last major seller for Apple.

Researchers says 57 percent of American wireless customers now own smart-phones, and the number could hit 70 percent next year.

That's the saturation point where tech products tend to see growth taper off.

Analysts say the increasing costs of data plans and upgrade fees from mobile carriers will dampen sales prospects for the iPhone 5 and future models.
