As expected, the iPhones 4S of Apples is off to a great start. More than 4 million of the units were sold in the first week itself. Enthusiastic buyers made a beeline at the retail outlets to lay their hands on the new touch screen smart phone.
Ever since its launch in the beginning of this month, much hype is created around this latest smart phone from Apple Inc. both by the company as well as the media. At present, it is available in seven countries i.e. United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and United Kingdom.
The company will sell the product in another 22 countries from October 28. Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing said that the iPhone 4S is undoubtedly the best ever in the series and the initial response for it has surpassed its predecessors. In fact, it is twice than the iPhone 4.
The iOS 5, the newest operating system of Apple has also become popular with as many as 25 million of users. Likewise, the iCloud, which is the company’s new wireless synch technology, has also attracted more than 20 million users. The iPhone 4S is powered by both of them.
With the iPhone 4S selling like hotcake, it is no wonder that investors would be keenly watching the company’s fourth quarter and the annual financial results when it will be made available on Tuesday evening. But some financial experts do believe that the company has already attained its peak.
