Sprint iPhone 4S Shipping Begins

We saw the much awaited launch of the iPhone 4S last week in the Let’s talk iPhone Event and though we didn’t see the much anticipated and rumored  iPhone 5, rather a step-uped version of the current phone. Early fan reactions were disappointing only for this same reason.

But on the contrary the iPhone 4S preorders have taken a huge leap with reports of as many as 200,000 units sold in first 12 hrs for pre-orders on AT&T network.This time around Sprint and Verizon also joined the race with AT&T to bring the newer version of iPhone to their networks as well and the response to those networks is also quite good.

So it’s obvious that there is going to be a tough competition amongst them to make the most of it,after the AT&T’s news about rapid sales of the phones it’s time for Sprint,as reported earlier by 9to5mac Sprint has already started shipping the iPhone 4S, as a reader from the blog tipped his Shipping notification for his iPhone 4S white 32GB version from Sprint and the phone will be shipping overnight/next day.

iPhone 4S hitting the stores in less than 4 days from now and is expected to beat all the previous records held by it’s predecessors.
