200,000 iPhone 4S's ordered over the weekend

Written by Nick Farell



People will buy anything

It had poor reviews, and is considered practically identical to its predecessor, but punters are cuing up for the iPhone4S as if it were original.

AT&T has said that it flogged more than 200,000 iPhone 4S in the first 12 hours and it had seen "extraordinary demand" for the gadget.
