Best Buy launches iPhone 4S pre-orders

Best Buy has started taking pre-orders for the iPhone 4S. The big-box retailer was apparently offering only 64GB black and white AT&T models for pre-order online—both of which have since sold out—but lists a number of models as available in-store. Models being offered for in-store pre-order include both black and white 16GB and 32GB Verizon and AT&T models, with 64GB Verizon models strangely absent. Nor is either 64GB Sprint model listed, while the 16GB and 32GB variants are listed as “coming soon,” with abnormally high—higher than Apple’s own unlocked pricing, in fact—pricing of $699 for the 16GB models and $799 for 32GB versions. Apple will launch the iPhone 4S on Friday, October 14.

Pre-ordering from Best Buy may not be what buyers think. Customers are being told in the stores that even though they pay $50 in advance, it is still first come, first serve on October 14, and that they won’t get phones until October 31. Refer to the Best Buy Community Forum
