Apple's iPhone 4S sizzles in its first few days of availability

Critics, analysts, and some iFans were initially disappointed when the iPhone 4S was announced earlier this month, but the buying public didn't seem to be bothered by the "warmed over iPhone 4" when it was officially made available this past Friday. After seeing initial pre-orders top one million units, Apple announced today that it sold over four million iPhone 4Ses over the weekend.

For comparison, Apple sold 1.7 million units of the iPhone 4 during its first three days of availbility.
“iPhone 4S is off to a great start with more than four million sold in its first weekend—the most ever for a phone and more than double the iPhone 4 launch during its first three days,” said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “iPhone 4S is a hit with customers around the world, and together with iOS 5 and iCloud, is the best iPhone ever.”

The iPhone 4S features an 800MHz dual-core A5 processor, 8MP rear camera, dual-mode CDMA/GSM network compatibility, and Siri voice recognition technology. Prices range from $199 for the 16GB iPhone 4S to $399 for the 64GB model with a two-year contract.

Cut down the CPU speed, only ~500MB of ram, no larger screen, same design as last years model, no A5 for the iPod Touch. (Sigh) That's so disappointing.

But what really lets me down is my preorder isn't arriving for another 3 weeks because all the people who got one before I did! Damn man, what a letdown...

Reminds me of a joke--

Two old [Italian]* women sitting next to each other are riding on a bus returning to Phoenix after a junket to Las Vegas. One says to the other, "You know, it was fun, but the food wasn't too good."
"I know.." replies the other, "the breakfast wasn't fresh, the lunch was late and dinner was overcooked."
"Yah, and you know what really bothered me?" adds the first lady. "The portions were so small."

Pretty lame joke...

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
