‘Will Apple’s iPhone 4S be the highest selling gadget’ is a question that many people are asking experts these days. Apple’s iPhone 4S, that was launched with a splash across the world – just one day before Steve Jobs died – is drawing hundreds of thousands of iPhone fans towards the Apple stores in Sydney, Tokyo, London, Paris, New York and other cities in the world, reports Reuters.
If this latest gadget from Apple continues to draw customers towards Apple stores for some more days, it will undoubtedly become the highest selling gadget in the world.
The day iPhone 4S was launched, many people criticized it for its lack of a design. It looks similar to iPhone 4. Reports of software glitches also surfaced within a few days after its launch.
On the positive side, iPhone 4S boasts of faster processor, upgraded camera, and better security tools than its predecessor. The voice software, which allows users to ask questions to phone, is being highly liked by the users.
Apple got over 1 million online orders for iPhone 4S in the first 24 hours after its release. This was more than the 600,000 online orders that were received for the iPhone 4.
Competitors’ weaknesses have provided an edge to iPhone 4S over its rivals. BlackBerry’s four-day outage has affected company’s image. A large number of customers who are turning out to Apple stores say they want to discard other companies in a hope to get something better from Apple.
Some industry experts believe iPhone’s fourth-quarter shipments may touch 30 million mark and even go beyond it.
“I am a fan, a big fan. I want something to remember Steve Jobs by,” said Haruko Shiraishi to Reuters while waiting in a queue at Tokyo’s smart Ginza shopping district.
