Apple Users Go Bananas over iPhone 4S in First Weekend

This morning Apple announced that more than four million people are now toting the new iPhone 4S – only three days after its initial launch on October 14. While four million made the purchasing decision, an additional 25 million customers plugged their Apple devices into iTunes – for what could be the last time – and upgraded to iOS 5, “the world's most advanced mobile operating system,” just five days after its release.

While Apple users whipped themselves up into a froth of excitement over the latest device and upgrade, an additional 20 million people too bubbly to remain grounded signed up for the iCloud service, a “breakthrough set of free cloud services that automatically and wirelessly store your content in iCloud and push it to all your devices.”

“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend-the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”

The new iMiracle comes dressed in its usual swanky black or white attire and is available in the United States for a suggested retail price of $199 for the 16GB model, $299 for the 32GB model and $399 for the new 64GB model (for all the Tim the Toolmans out there that need more power!). You can find the iPhone 4S at the Apple Online Store, Apple's retail stores and through AT&T, Sprint, Verizon Wireless, and select Best Buy, Target and Walmart stores and select Apple authorized resellers.
