After the sites of the companies selling the iPhone 4S went down yesterday and Best Buy announced that the product is sold out, now we learn that the new iPhone got 200k pre-orders in 12 hours on AT&T alone.
Of course, you can’t take these figures for granted, so you’ll have to wait for Apples’s announcement on sales after the October 14th release date. If you want to get an idea of how well things are going, AT&T is claiming that is the most succesful iPhone launch it has ever had.
Considering these numbers, it will be a real battle in the stores on the 14th, for the people looking to get an iPhone 4S. If this continuesm, the iPhone 4 follow-up will become the most popular smartphone ever and it’s not even as innovative as most people hoped it would be.
