Apple reports that opening weekend sales of the iPhone 4S have set a new record, selling more than 4 million units over its debut weekend. That’s more than double the amount the iPhone 4 sold when it hit shelves.

Part of the credit for that, of course, is the expanded number of carriers. When the iPhone 4 hit, AT&T was the only mobile company to stock it. (Verizon became a carrier several months later.) This time, both carriers – and Sprint – had the phone on day one.
