“Apple today announced pre-orders of its iPhone 4S have topped one million in a single day…’We are blown away with the incredible customer response to iPhone 4S,’ said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. ‘The first day pre-orders for iPhone 4S have been the most for any new product that Apple has ever launched and we are thrilled that customers love iPhone 4S as much as we do.'”
The iPhone’s appeal reaches far beyond “status seekers” to people who want a useful phone. Over one million of them, in fact.
