Shipping times still averaging 1-2 weeks
The iPhone 4S is now formally on sale in 22 more countries, following an expansion of preorders exactly a week ago. For the time being Apple has adopted a European focus; new regions include Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. More regions should be added over the course of the next several months.
Apple's shipping times for most countries are still said to one to two weeks. An exception however is in Singapore, where the Apple lists the 4S as "currently unavailable." Local carrier SingTel, meanwhile, ran out of appointments to buy the phone in an hour and a half on Wednesday, the same day it opened its registration website.
