So, like others, I was tempted to write a defense of the iPhone 4S after all the pundits and naysayers came out last week calling the iPhone 4S "disappointing". I'm glad I never found the time. As it turns out the iPhone 4s doesn't need anybody to stand up for it.
1,000,000 phones sold on the first day of pre-orders. That's 400,000 more than the iPhone 4.
And, that's not counting the number that will sell on October 14th when they arrive at the Apple Stores in 7 countries.
There's also a large batch of countries that don't get the phone until October 28, and a whopping 40 more countries (including China, where new Apple Stores have been shattering sales records lately) that won't get the iPhone 4s until some time in December.
Yeah. Disappointing. You guys in the media sure nailed that one.
