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.

Do you know what happens to zoo bred animals when you release them in the wild?
They get products worth buying with features people actually want?
Right, sure they are!

Let's see how this happens. First, you let the zoo animal in the wild. Second, say some wild leopard in some savanna comes up to it and politely asks: "Dear zoo animal from the walled garden, would you like some product with features you want, like maybe a bowl of food they were feeding you in the zoo?"
