Looks like having the iPhones is simply turning out to be a huge money maker for AT&T. Today AT&T announced that it has so far activated more than a million iPhone 4S since its sale on Friday! This makes the launch of the iPhone 4S the “most successful” iPhone launch since AT&T began carrying the device in 2007. AT&T Mobility CEO Ralph de la Vega said, “It’s no surprise that customers are clamoring for iPhone 4S and they want it to run on a network that lets them download twice as fast as competitors’”.
Apple reported earlier this week that it sold a record breaking 4 million iPhone 4S units in the first three days after the device went on sale. This year Apple launched the iPhone 4S simultaneously on the three large wireless networks. AT&T, Verizon Wireless and Sprint have seen a customer boost across the board!
Around the world the iPhone 4S is available in seven major markets around the world, including the US, Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Japan and the UK. Twenty two additional markets will have access to Apple’s newest handset on October 28. Those markets include Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. By the end of 2011, more than 70 countries will have the iPhone 4S.
