Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) said it stopped taking pre-orders for Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone 4 at 8:10 p.m. EST yesterday, and that the pre-order sales broke company sales records–an echo of the flood of traffic that greeted AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T) when it took pre-orders for the device in June.
Verizon began taking pre-orders at 3 a.m. EST Thursday for existing customers. According to the carrier, within the first two hours Verizon sold more phones than any first day launch in its history. Verizon said online pre-orders will begin again Feb. 9 at 3:01 a.m. EST, and that its stores will open at 7 a.m. local time on Feb. 10 for the official launch. Apple stores also will open at 7 a.m. local time on Feb. 10; Best Buy will offer the CDMA iPhone then as well.
The launch was not without glitches. Verizon spokeswoman Brenda Raney told Reuters that the majority of the carrier’s customers were able to get their orders processed, but that some customers received error messages. She said Verizon is trying to sort through the issues.
Meanwhile, other carriers are working hard to blunt the impact of the Verizon iPhone. AT&T said Thursday it will throw its marketing muscle behind the Motorola Mobility (NYSE:MMI) Atrix 4G. Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S) will host a media event in New York City Monday to unveil an “industry first.” And T-Mobile is offering two free G2 smartphones when customers sign up for an unlimited, two-line family plan, which costs $179.99 per month. Additionally, the No. 4 carrier, which is kickstarting a company-wide turnaround plan, set up a special website to hype its smartphones and HSPA+ network, which it markets as 4G.

Internet telephony services provider Skype entered a definitive agreement to acquire mobile video software and services provider Qik. The transaction is expected to close later this month; financial terms were not disclosed, but multiple insider sources peg the purchase price at $100 million.
Qik’s platform enables consumers to capture and share video across mobile devices, the web and the desktop–content can be shared in real time or archived. The Qik solution extends across more than 200 mobile phones spanning the iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Symbian operating systems; in addition, Qik comes preloaded on a series of devices via partnerships with multiple manufacturers and mobile operators.
According to Skype, the acquisition bolsters its existing video calling services by adding recording, sharing and storage capabilities to its product portfolio. In addition, Skype can leverage Qik’s Smart Streaming technology, which optimizes video transmission over wireless networks. Approximately 40 percent of Skype-to-Skype calls take place over video.
