    Apple has officially announced that they have sold one million iPhone 4S units in 24 hours, which beats down the previous 600,000-unit record set by the iPhone 4. Insane. Phil Schiller is "blown away":

    That's strange because people wanted Iphone 5 and was dissapointed about 4S.

    Apple fans still buy anything Apple on it. That's kinda one of the trademarks of being an Apple fan. Never pleased, but always willing to buy.

    journals didn't count china hungry needs of iphone 4 and 4gs, if 4gs is cheaper people will switch to 4gs of course, there is big grey market to sell iphone 4gs from usa to asia
    after all, all iphone were possible to unlock and use in all countries. many iphone 4gs bought in usa with contract will be resold in china, in china new iphone is a must to have. and watch USD / Yuan / Euro currency change, you can just live and make money to resell US iphone

    nothing like Steve Jobs dying to drive apple nuts insane. i may sound like a dick right now, but i think a vast majority of those sales are sympathy sales. kinda like how i'd sell an arm and a leg if Nintendo decides to make a definitive 3DS revision AFTER Iwata or Miyamoto dies. god forbid. i want my grand kids to be able to play games that they make. of course, sympathy's just one facet of it. i fully acknowledge the insatiable hunger Apple has instilled in their customer base.

    Two of those reason's also apply to the iphone 3GS/4, and possible siri as well once jailbreakers get their hands on it.

    They only sold that many because Steve Jobs died and his Fans want to show their support. I doubt the iphone 4S is even that good.

    It's not different enough from the iPhone 4 to upgrade in my opinion.

    Off topic, but Android is 100x better. I just wish people looked past the Apple brand to see that.
