Apple has announced that its new iPhone 4S handset racked up more than one million pre-orders in its first day, beating the 600,000 record set by its predecessor the iPhone 4. In fact, it’s the most first-day pre-orders for any Apple product ever, indicating pent-up demand for the new model despite a lukewarm media response in some quarters to the lack of a fully-fledged iPhone 5. Analysts have been taking the pre-order figures and running with them. RBC Capital Markets’ Mike Abramsky claims that Apple is on course to sell three million iPhone 4S’ in the first weekend of actual availability, beating the 1.7 million first-weekend sales of the iPhone 4. Meanwhile, Piper Jaffray’s Gene Munster reckons Apple can sell more than 25 million iPhones (all models) in the final quarter of this year.Read more:
