iPhone 4S Already Sold Out in Hong Kong

Apple’s iPhone 4S launched in Hong Kong at 7 am local time today and was sold out by morning’s end.

According to Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White, by lunchtime there was not a 4S to be had in the Hong Kong Apple Store. Other reports say the device sold out in about three hours. Not a surprise, really, given that preorders sold out in just 10 minutes. Before its doors opened this morning, crowds had been lining up for more than 24 hours outside Hong Kong’s flagship Apple store. Below, video of that enormous queue.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
