Today ends probably one of the most intense weeks ever for Apple; unprecedented high expectations followed by mixed feelings after the iPhone 4S was unveiled, and the shattering news regarding the company's co-founder monopolising the headlines all over the world.
One could easily have missed the the fact that from October 7th, the first customers can register pre-orders for the newest Apple device, iPhone 4S.
Starting on Friday, in US, Canada, Canada, Australia, UK, France, Germany, and Japan customers can now pre-order the iPhone 4S. Three weeks from now, on October 28th, the newly released iPhone will hit another 22 markets and iPhone 4S will be available in 70 more countries by the end of this year.
In the US the top three wireless carriers, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint will include iPhone 4S in their offer to subscribers. The subsidised prices are $199 (for the 16 GB iPhone 4S version), $299 (32 GB) and $399 (64 GB) when signing a two-year contract. There are some differences however.
AT&T and Verizon have limited data plan, unlike their previous strategies in selling the iPhone. Sprint will continue its consumer friendly strategy with an unlimited data plan, which is not available on rivals AT&T or Verizon. Differences also appear when it comes to additional features, such as Wi-Fi hotspot.
The first customers will be able to get an iPhone 4S in their hands in just a week.
