iPhone 4S Preorders Begin on October 7, Available on October 14

I am looking forward to the iPhone 4S platform refresh. Preorders begin on October 7, and the new iPhone should be available on October 14. Since my two year old iPhone 3GS is falling apart (the case is cracked around the USB port and the mute switch), I am eyeing an upgrade. I use my iPhone far more often than my iPad–though they do serve different purposes for me–I think that a new iPhone 4S will be a worthwhile investment.

I would like to read on apple.com about the liveblogging things that I heard earlier today, but I am greeted with a message that heralds the fact that lots and lots of people also want to find out about the new iPhone 4S:

Good luck to you if you are also in the market for a new phone.
