Today, Apple released new variant of its flagship smartphone iPhone. The iPhone 4S was released on 3 major US carriers and as you know that Apple already sold out all the pre orders in the first day, iPhone 4S is a mega hit on the launch.
Demand Greater Than Expected
Sprint has sold out all the 16 GB model units of iPhone 4S but it is still taking orders for 32GB and 64GB versions. While on the other hand, Verizon and AT&T have completely sold out all the iPhone 4S models. If you order now from Verizon, then you will receive the delivery by 28th October. It means that Verizon is expecting a quick turnaround time for more iPhone 4S units and that’s why it is still taking new orders. But AT&T’s website is not loading properly so, we can’t say anything about the delivery time of the new orders for AT&T.
Similar Shape To iPhone 4 But Still Doing Good Business
So, it is now safe to say that regardless of the fact that the new iPhone 4S looks similar to the iPhone 4 but still it is a hit. The new iPhone is definitely an upgrade to the device. Especially, Siri will be the potentially useful service introduced in the new device. According to a report from the Reuters an analyst states that:
Apple no longer has a leading edge, its cloud service is even behind (Google’s mobile operating system) Android; it can only sell on brand loyalty
But we think that the analyst cannot understand that Apple is doing a great job keeping all of these services and products together to make the user experience fluid and seamless. Google has many cool apps for its operating system but still it lacks the ability to provide support in PC in order to sync files with the services in mobile devices. Take the example of Google Music or Google Docs, in both cases you can manage you music and docs on your mobile device but you cant sync them automatically from the device you are creating them.
In the end I have a got a statement by another analyst at Bloomberg who sums all up pretty well:
It looks like another blockbuster launch for Apple, only this time with three carriers.
