iPhone 3G S Is Already a Hit

Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) will likely have another hit on its hands with the upcoming release of the iPhone 3G S, as the company has sold out of its allotment of pre-order units for the June 19 launch day.

The company said those ordering after June 13 won't receive a unit on launch day, and may have to wait up to one to two weeks to receive their smartphone. AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), the exclusive carrier of the iPhone 3G S in the United States, and Apple have set aside an uncertain amount of units for customers to buy at retail locations when the handset is released.

The handset looks almost identical to the iPhone 3G, but it beefs up the processor to make the smartphone faster. The iPhone 3G S also has an improved camera that can record and edit videos, the ability to dial contacts with voice commands, and there's also a digital compass that can integrate with mapping services for easy navigation.
