It looks like dogs everywhere are in for some trouble as Apple reveals over one million iPhone 3G S models were sold this past weekend. Yep, that’s a whole lot of high pitched squealing — but apparently the “S” stands for “Sales”. Almost equally as impressive, it looks like Steve Jobs was somehow tracked down for comment:
Are you enjoying your brand new iPhone 3G S? Did you get a 16GB or a 32GB? Well, that won’t matter if people are experiencing what we are. There seems to a problem with sound files on the 3G S and the result after they’re triggered. After they are done playing — like the unlock sound, SMS sound, for instance — the iPhone emits a high-frequency tone. No, were not kidding. Something pretty high around 15KHz. We’ve confirmed this isn’t a local isolated issue with our phone,and since some people can’t hear these types of high-pitched tones, your iPhone might produce it yet you’d never notice.
Do you see anyone you know standing in that line? Today is the day to pack up your toys, gadgets and snacks, and head out to Apple/AT&T/Rogers/Fido/Carphone Warehouse or wherever else if you didn’t order your iPhone online to be shipped. After all, it’s either lines today or a test of patience down the road. Be sure you are well prepared and are up to date on pricing and details on grabbing your iPhone; we wouldn’t want to see anyone turned away after spending an entire morning or afternoon (or both) braving the elements, wherever you are. After all the pics and updates we’ve given you, everything has finally culminated to this moment. Let us know what lines in your area are like — if there even are lines in your area — and how easy or difficult it was to leave the store with your shiny, new iPhone 3G S in hand!
While no official numbers are available just yet of course, AT&T Mobility Prez Ralph De La Vega has just issued a preliminary 3G S assessment during an interview with CNBC. According to De La Vega, iPhone 3G S demand is exceeding AT&T’s expectations and “hundreds of thousands of customers” have pre-ordered the new Apple handset. The smartphone space is definitely heating up, what with competitive offerings like the “BlackBerry RIM” (1:17 in the video below) gaing ground every day, but it looks like Apple’s updated iPhone — however modest said update may be — will still manage to have a killer opening weekend. We certainly won’t see numbers anywhere near last year’s iPhone 3G launch but recent high profile launches such as that of the Palm Pre will apparently pale in comparison. Hit the jump for the De La Vega interview vid.
We know, we know. This isn’t like last year when we were the first to have an iPhone 3G, but come on, we’re the first to have one that’s not supposed to have one yet. That’s got to count for something? Since the phone isn’t activated at the moment, there’s not much to show besides some glamor shots. So click on over to the gallery to get your fill of iPhone 3G S greatness, my OS X-loving friends.
Hoping to avoid tomorrow’s lines at Apple and AT&T retail locations but still looking to bag yourself a new 3G S? Thanks to a MacRumors forum member, it might me easier than you think. Amacfa has obtained what he or she claims to be Best Buy Mobile’s complete iPhone 3G S inventory for tomorrow’s launch and has posted it as a public spreadsheet on Google Docs. While it is not known how many units are spoken for due to pre-orders, you will definitely be able to get a good idea of which stores in your area have a healthy 3G S inventory and which ones you’d be better off avoiding. Assuming the sheet is real, that is. Hit Best Buy’s site and use the store locator to determine the store numbers for your local Best Buy locations and then hit the read link to see what kind of inventory you’re going to be dealing with. Better act fast though — according to the sheet, Best Buy locations across the country will only have a total of 17,580 iPhone 3G S units on hand for launch day.
As we’re sure you’re all very well aware by now, tomorrow marks the day that the iPhone 3G S will be available to the masses. Online pre-orders will be delivered and both Apple and AT&T stores will be opening with stock in hand to sell. Those preparing to score themselves a shiny new iPhone 3G S may want to take heed of some of the information that AT&T and Apple have released regarding tomorrow’s launch however, so hit the jump for a full run down of the launch information.
