Tech Today: Latest iPhone 4S news, Kindle to outsell iPad?

Tuesday night's news was naturally dominated by the aftermatch Apple iPhone launch event in Cupertino. We've got news on how to watch the keynote, the fate of the iPod classic and whether the announcement pleased investors. We've also got word on some pretty tasty Amazon Kindle Fire sales figures.

Amazon selling 50,000 Kindle Fire tablets a day?
Reports on Tuesday night suggest that Amazon has some serious envelope stuffing to do prior to the US Kindle Fire launch on November 15th. The Cult of Android website, claims to have gotten its hands-on internal inventory documents that say the company is selling 2,000 an hour, 50,000 a day. The report says that if this trend continues until launch day, it would have 2.5m pre-orders, beating the iPad 2 as the most successful tablet launch ever.

Apple iPod classic lives on!
It has been rumoured for weeks that the iconic iPod classic might be ready for the knackers yard after 10 glorious years. When Apple failed to mention the device as part of its iPod presentation on Tuesday we thought it was curtains. However, when the Apple Store came back online, the click-wheel device remained among the family album. We're pretty happy about that.

Investors panic as iPhone 5 pulls a no-show
Apple stock dropped 5 per cent on Tuesday as the company failed to produce a new iPhone 5 model. Seemingly the launch of a vastly improved device wasn't enough to convince Wall Street, which seemingly anticipated a slick new design.
