AT&T: Best iPhone Launch We’ve Ever Had
It looks like AT&T customers weren’t disappointed by the iPhone 4S announcement. The carrier claims they sold 200,000 iPhones on Friday.
“AT&T has seen extraordinary demand for iPhone 4S with more than 200,000 preorders in the first 12 hours alone, the most successful iPhone launch we’ve ever had. It’s obvious customers like AT&T’s 4G network, which is the only one that lets their iPhone download twice as fast and talk and surf simultaneously.”
Good news for AT&T, but bad news for people who waited to pre-order the phone. New orders through AT&T’s online store will now take 1-2 weeks for delivery.
Sprint also sold out of the 16GB iPhone 4S. There’s been no word on Verizon, or how many iPhones were sold through Apple’s online store.
The iPhone 4S officially launches on October 14 and features an 8-megapixel camera, dual-core A5 processor and the new voice command assistant Siri. It ships with Apple earphones, dock connector to USB cable, USB power adapter, and documentation. The iPhone 4S is $199.99 for the 16GB model, $299.99 for the 32GB model and $399.99 for the 64GB model. All prices require a new or upgraded contract.
