Apple's iPhone 4S has so far been a sales success, with the coveted smartphone still quickly selling out at many retailers nearly three weeks after its U.S. launch.

With Apple seemingly selling as many iPhones as it can make, the Cupertino, Calif., tech giant is indeed making more iPhones -- for Hong Kong, South Korea and 13 additional countries where it will launch Nov. 11. Consumers in those countries will be able to pre-order the iPhone 4S on Friday.

C-Spire Wireless, a southern U.S. regional carrier, announced Tuesday it will also start selling the iPhone 4S on Nov. 11 at the standard prices of $200 for a 16-gigabyte unit, $300 for a 32-gigabyte phone and $400 for a 64-gigabyte model.

No doubt, it'll take some time to get the iPhone 4S if ordered online, no matter what country you're located. In the U.S., the online wait from is still one to two weeks.

Aside from Hong Kong and South Korea, the iPhone 4S will head to Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal and Romania.

With the iPhone 4S currently on sale in 29 countries, the 15 new nations will push the total to 44. Apple said in a statement that it will have the iPhone 4S on sale in more than 70 countries by the end of the year.
