    Default iPhone 4S On Route To Be Apple's Most Successful Launch Ever


    According to a report by Reuters, the iPhone 4S is far from a disappointment as it continues to see more promising sales than any other iPhone before. It is being reported that AT&T is seeing “extraordinary demand” for the iPhone 4S which was available for preorder earlier today. The wireless carrier revealed that the company has seen over 200,000 preorders for the iPhone 4S in the first 12 hours of the sale alone.

    One has to take into consideration that this is 200,000 preorders in the first 12 hours for just AT&T. This year, the iPhone 4S has been released on Verizon and Sprint as well, who haven’t revealed their numbers as of yet. Even though the iPhone 4S is currently being sold amongst three carriers, AT&T has mentioned that this is "the most successful iPhone launch we’ve ever had".

    Furthermore, Apple is also accepting iPhone 4S preorders in multiple countries outside of the United States as well, including Australia, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Once numbers from these countries come in, it seems to be inevitable that the iPhone 4S will be the most successful iPhone yet.

    According to the folks over at MacRumors, Apple last year saw 600,000 iPhone 4 preorders in the first day across all carriers and five countries (including the US, France, Germany, Japan, and the UK). With 200,000 preorders for AT&T in the United States alone Apple is on the way to see the highest sales it has yet. What’s even more ironic is that this number comes in after the many issues customers saw last night at 12:01 AM Pacific time when trying to preorder their iPhone 4S.

    What do you think of the sales? It seems to be pretty ironic that after many people complained about being disappointed, sales seem to be this high. Share your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!

    I still don't think it's going to create as long of a line as the iPad 2. I just don't feel that same need it or gotta have mentality with this one as it did with the iPhone 4.

    As I had said on October 4th, the iPhone 4S would have no problem selling. Not surprised, but just hadn't wanted to claim too much, with the new iPhone breaking record sales again. In fact, I'm more surprised that people had tried to tell me that "this iPhone would be the downfall" when there have been complaints for all the iPhones, and yet each one is more successful than the last.

    I hate to say it but Steve's passing away will have increased sales.I didn't want iPhone 4S but after seeing how much I miss Steve when I didn't even personally know him makes me think i should get the phone as dual cores, 8mp camera n Siri will be sweet.

    Dude, not to be a ****, but you don't even have the slightest connection with Steve, and you don't know even who he is. To me it seems insulting that people say they miss someone when they die, when they really didn't give a **** about the person in the first place.

    It's like some no name committing suicide and then everyone on their Facebook consistently post RIP pictures and say how they miss them, when they didn't even know the person, nor did they even care about their existence in the first place until they died.

    Sorry, but this isn't true. Maybe 1 or 2% of all initial orders for the 4S will have to do with Steve's death. His death will have nothing to do with the sales of this phone.

    Apple knew this all along, that is why they didn't give a rat's a** about how "disappointing" some people felt about the launch..

    Im not surprised to hear that sales are still through the roof. Doesn't everyone remember when the iPad was hated on for just being a huge iPod... but those sales broke records. Personally I was disappointed about the 4s because I liked the tear drop design floating around the internet, but I've never actually owned an iPhone so I'm not going to wait another year just to get the design I want.

    These initial sales are from all the people that will buy anything that Apple sells no matter what it is or what it cost. Since the 4s is a lame upgrade, the sales will taper off after all the Apple fanatics get their orders in. I believe Apple knows that they have created a cult like following and didn't need to come out with the iPhone 5 right now. They know the 4s is lame but they don't care because they know millions will still buy it.

    And those people existed when the iPhone 3G, 3GS, and 4 were released as well...yet the preorder numbers for the 4S are still apparently higher. It's not like the apple fanboy was born last month.

    Glad you said something first. I held back. Ha


    Anyhow, this will be the first time I won't be upgrading. I just didn't feel compelled to reaching into my pocket and dishing out cash for something I probably won't even use IMO. I'm just not looking forward to tasting my foot.

    Default i think the grammar check isn't working too hot either.
    Besides spell check, maybe the grammar and English needs some attention

    This is another typical example of how blogs, newspapers, tech analysts, and general outsiders can be way off base with their assumptions and opinions. This is a great upgrade for the phone, contracts for 3GSs are coming due, and more carriers are offering it.

    I agree it has some great hardware jumps. Even more so for 3GS users. Yes the i4 is still a great device but 4S is rocking some pretty sweet hardware.

    I am trying to talk my wife into getting it. We have three upgrades available and she loves her iproducts, but in her eyes it isn't worth the hassle. I explained to her that just because it didn't get a fancy new look that it isn't the same phone as her i4. I see a stocking stuffer in her near future and just have to decide which color to run with.
