AT&T has announced that the company experienced extraordinary demand for iPhone 4S with more than 200,000 preorders in the first 12 hours alone.

According to AT&T, iPhone 4S is the most successful iPhone launch AT&T has ever had.

AT&T said in a statement, “It’s obvious customers like AT&T’s 4G network, which is the only one that lets their iPhone download twice as fast and talk and surf simultaneously.”

MacDailyNews Take: So, is this due to a Steve Jobs’ halo effect or did the general public actually grasp what makes iPhone 4S so special — even if it does look just like iPhone 4, isn’t named “5,” and lacks a silver model 😉 — or some mixture of both?

Regardless of the reason(s), congrats to Apple for yet another blockbuster success!
