We’re still a bit perplexed by iPhone 4S fever. What the hell does Joe Average care about a dual-core processor or silly voice recognition abilities? But hey, it’s a NEW iPHONE, woohoo!
Anyways, regardless of how you feel about the iPhone 4S, it’s on course to explode all former iPhone launch records. Logic? What logic?
Various analysts are throwing their two cents into the hat of speculation, and the figures are really quite astounding.
With 1 million preorders in the first 24 hours, Mike Abramsky of RBC Capital Markets reckons Apple could punt as many as 3 million units in the first weekend, almost double the number of iPhone 4s sold in June 2010.
Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster suggests Apple could sell up to 25 million iPhones in the fourth quarter, making it the “strongest iPhone launch ever”.
JP Morgan & Chase analyst Mark Moskowitz adds: “The early momentum of the iPhone 4S reaffirms Apple’s leadership in smartphones.”
There are three iPhone 4S options, namely the 16GB at £499, 32GB at £599 and 64GB at £699. Ka-Ching!
