Apple finally abreast with iPhone 4S demand
If you’ve tried getting an iPhone 4S over the Holidays, you might have noticed that the waiting times are making gifting it almost a mission impossible for last-minute buyers. No wonder - turns out Apple sold a mind-blowing 37 million iPhones and the majority of them were iPhone 4S’s. Now, as the rush to get your craved device for the Holidays has slowed, the iPhone 4S has finally caught up with demand as the handset is finally “in stock” across various carriers and countries.

The iPhone 4S is immediately available in every capacity and color, with delivery times shortened to between three and five days. Actually, the delivery times have been noticeably reduced in the last two weeks.

Apple has made a special mention of surprisingly huge iPhone 4S demand that even Cupertino didn’t expect and that’s one reason that stopped sales from being even better. It’s been around three months since the iPhone 4S hit the market with little visual change, but an all-new A5 chip under the hood, one of the best cameras on a cell phone and iOS 5.

Erroneous report; the 16GB version is still on back-order for at least half the country.

I'm not sure what half of the country you live in, but the half I live in hasn't had any backorder since late November..

imo the "shortage" is done by apple to hype up the desire. they are playing people and trying to convince them that if it's out of stock it's because everyone wants one, therefore they should want one soon. it happens everytime they launch a phone. for such a proud company, they have a pretty good idea how many they are going to sell, but they don't want the desire to deminish.

Interesting that PA uses iPhone 4 boxes as the graphic for an article about the availability of iPhone 4s'..
