News from Reuters, Apple iPhone 4s is being sold in stores in seven country across the globle on Friday, with fans snapping up the final gadget unveiled during Steve Jobs’ lifetime, many buying the phone as a tribute to the former Apple boss.
It’s reported that Sydney is the first country to sale iPhone 4s, then Japan, German, France, England, American and Canada. So, you can see hundreds of fans queued around city blocks in Sydney and Tokyo to be the first to get their hands on the iPhone 4S, which looks similar to the previous iPhone 4 but has a faster processor, better camera and a well-received voice activated software – Siri, which makes the new iPhone still get a good comment after the disappointment of no iPhone 5.
Australian Tom Mosca, the first to buy the new phone in Sydney, said the first thing he would do was ask his new white iPhone: “Where’s Steve?” Many Apple fans believe the phone was called iPhone 4S meaning “for Steve”. ( I also believe this saying.) So, many fans are willing to buy new iPhone, it’s said that the pre-order of iPhone 4s has set a new record, as it beat the old record of 600,000 sales for the iPhone 4. And a report from Reuters shows, only ten per cent of the queued people are new users, other are Apple fans to upgrade their iPhone.
Though Apple said that they wouldn’t make the sales data public, Apple CEO Tim Cook and his executive team hope the first device launched without the firm’s former visionary leader at the helm will safeguard their global market share and the volumn can reache up to 3 million, doubled as last year’s record.
