Apple sells 4 million iPhone 4S units on first weekend


iPhone 4S sales

You know how all the tech pundits out there kept calling the Apple iPhone 4S an "underwhelming" upgrade? Well, it turns out that those in the real world were actually pretty stoked about it. Apple sold 4 million iPhone 4S smartphones in the first weekend of availability, doubling what they did with the iPhone 4 when it was released. That number is just mind-boggling, and there's no other smartphone out there that has even come close. AT&T let it be known that they activated twice as many iPhones during the iPhone 4S launch as they did with the iPhone 4, shattering their one-day record. Sprint, carrying the iPhone for the first time, said that the iPhone 4S broke its single-day sales record of any single device, ever. All this after selling over 1 million iPhone 4S preorders in 24 hours.

So, yeah, we guess it's not so underwhelming, despite what the pundits will tell ya.
