iPhone 4S Pre-orders - Apple Sold Out!

Only a few short days ago, most reviews from tech insiders were rather critical of Apple's announcement of the new iPhone 4S.  It was widely anticipated that Apple was going to release a new iPhone 4S, but it was also expected that Apple would unveil a new iPhone 5.  That didn't happen.

As for consumers, they clearly have a different take on Apple's announcement!  iPhone 4S pre-orders are already sold out internationally and here in the states.  1-2 week shipping times are now being indicated on Apple's online store website.

AT&T has also announced that they've seen "extraordinary demand" for the new iPhone 4S with preorders topping 200,000 in the first 12 hours!  The press release goes on to state that these numbers make the iPhone 4S the most "successful iPhone launch" that AT&T has ever had.  In comparison, the iPhone 4 had a total of 600,000 preorders (in total, across all wireless carriers).

Things are looking pretty good for Sprint, too.  They've already sold out of the 16GB iPhone 4S model.
