German customer gets his Apple iPhone 4S delivered early
Those that pre-ordered the Apple iPhone 4S before inventory ran dry should be receiving the phone this Friday when it will also be in stores. Apple received 1 million pre-orders for the phone in the first 24 hours that it was available, breaking the previous record of 600,000 units set last year by the Apple iPhone 4. New orders will now be shipped in 1 to 2 weeks according to Apple's web site and those of the three carriers in the U.S. offering the fifth generation version of Apple's touchscreen handset. With such a great start, some analysts see the Apple iPhone 4S selling 25 million units during the fourth quarter.

1 million of pre-orders on the first day. That breaks a couple of records. Let's see the sales when it actually comes out. That's what I want to see.

good thing you wrote it twice, otherwise I wouldn't have understood what you said...

Yes it would do because there is alot od Apple fans and there is no other phone competing on the same OS.
On android you have loads of different manufacturers competing with each other. Otherwise I think the likes of the SGS2 would outsell iphone if it was the only android phone available.

I would think otherwise, the thing with android is that there are top of the line models but there are also cheaper models. The reason android is succeeding is because of this, I can buy into android for around $200 while iphone costs close to $900 (outright).

before this turns into another iPhone vs Android flame-war, please remember: arguing on the Internet is like competing in the special Olympics - even if you win, you are still retarded.
28. bobparker (unregistered)
fair enough, I appologise if the use of retard offended you, my basic point was: arguing on the internet is pointless. Getting all worked up and upset, insult slinging and verbal tantrums also falls into this category. And there is way to much of it in the phonearena comments.

if you continue making those sort of comments I see you competing in the near future and by the way I dont expect you to win

this guy is damn lucky.....waiting for mine
recently read about its camera and web benchmarks on gsmarena.......way better than S2.....almost double.....
anyway samsung always sucked and with android getting their a**es f***ed too.....can only make iphone copycats designwise......
probably thats why they are hiring trollers like PETER the pudenda....lol

No, it was double the iPhone 4 but not up to the GS2 according to the article and video on PA earlier this morning. There are also concerns about Apple copying Samsung antenna designs as well, so the patent wars may get new life in the coming months.

Yeah I was hoping Samsung would try to get an injunction preventing apple from selling the infringing devices at all....

What the hell is the big deal about this? It's not even a news, just a teaser for hungry iPhone fans. No one cares about this, even iPhone fans doesnt give a sh*t. This only makes them jealous. Jealous to a less capable device that tops the sales charts.

Apparently you do care since you took the time to comment.
19. dacastrator (Posts: 232; Member since: 22 Sep 2011)
@Hallucinator - the way you came up with the effort of responding to my comment, makes you sound stupid and somewhat hallucinating.

Because it generates page clicks so Phonearena can make more money. You took the bait, I took the bait, we all took the bait.

What if they just put an iPhone 4 in the box. Would you be able to tell the difference right away? I'm not joking or trying to talk crap, I'm serious.

I believe the 4S is the only Idevice capable of Siri.
9. THE_GAME5 (Posts: 35; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
maybe you are the illegal bro of DECASTRATOR.....
anyways for your inf. the screws used for the new antenna are different from ip4....moreover 4s is slightly longer
20. Landmarkcm (Posts: 479; Member since: 11 Aug 2009)
Well I hope the bumper thing I liked I bought from ebay for the 4 should fit my 4S just fine??? The dimensions are listed as being exactly the same!..
27. box (unregistered)
Dimensions aren't the same, you'll likely need a new case unless the one you got is a stretchy one that happens to have big enough holes. The 4S is about .04mm (or in? don't remember) bigger overall I think, so almost the same size, but the buttons are in slightly different locations. I believe Engadget or Gizmodo had the two stacked to show the differences

Wouldn't 1 million pre-orders for iphone4s be the same as the article last week about Android 1 million a day activations....-that's per day-- Iphone or Apple is not activating 1 million iphones per day...just on initial launch/pre-order of a new (I mean updated) iphone4s
17. lollercaust (unregistered)
iPhone is one model? So the original, 3g, 3gs, 4, 4s are all just one model?
22. dacastrator (Posts: 232; Member since: 22 Sep 2011)
I cant take your stupidity. It's almost killing me. It's not decastrator, it's dacastrator you moron.
And your stupid less capable iP one model sells like hell, no one is arguing that. But it's overpriced and its outdated specs are very disappointing not only for you iFags but also for the whole world. It's an iFail. But because it's Apple and already came to the point that people sees it as a status symbol, people will buy it.
So stop whining about your iP one model because you just won't make no sense.
