iPhone 4S was launched a week ago in 7 countries with multiple carriers and with an overwhelming response it broke all its previous selling records with most of the carriers already running out of stock and the apple stores already going reservation only a few days ago.
So along with that release the second major release all around the world covering as many as 22 countries is scheduled for 28th October.
The countries are as follows, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
So Apple has already started working things out for the mega launch, as they have already started taking Preorders for the 28th October launch countries allowing people to buy the new iPhone 4S in advance. As of today the shipping time for the phone is 1-2 weeks according to the official Apple Store shipment. It won’t be surprising to see if this Pre Orders also gets record sells just like the earlier one before the 7 countries launch, when the Preorders sold 1 million units in the first 24 hours.[via - MacStories]
