Apple has announced that they have received over one million iPhone 4S pre-orders on the first 24 hours.

“We are blown away with the incredible customer response to iPhone 4S,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “The first day pre-orders for iPhone 4S have been the most for any new product that Apple has ever launched and we are thrilled that customers love iPhone 4S as much as we do.”

That number tops the previous record for Apple held by the iPhone 4 which sold 600,000 units in pre-order on the first day. AT&T previously announced that they alone were responsible for 200,000 iPhone 4S pre-orders.

The iPhone 4S launches officially on October 14th when it will become available in retail stores. Pre-orders should arrive to customers at about the same time.

That's some flop.

Not only is a million beyond impressive, it's also a new record.

Blah blah blah the 4S is a flop..... blah blah blah Nexus Prime..... blah blah blah Apple will be out of business within 2 months without Steve Jobs.... blah blah blah non one will buy this because everyone will wait for the iPhone 5...... blah blah blah Apple really missed the mark and there's nothing new here......
wait, what? Oh, it's a wild hit? And Apple's more robust than ever, with unprecedented demand? And Tim Cook knows what he's doing? And no one's clamoring for the Nexus after all? My bad! Carry on. :rolleyes::apple:
