Apple Is Out of iPhone 4s

Apple and its partners have pretty much exhausted its initial allotment of the new iPhone 4.

However, if you're still interested in getting one on launch day, stay tuned to what Apple may have to say.  I wager many of the pre-orders may have be claimed.

Furthermore, if history is any indication, there may be a limited supply of the iPhone for walk-ins.  When the iPad launched, there was "enough for everyone" who wants one.

T-Mobile in Germany suffered through the same issues in the US after seeing a 10X increase in demand compared to last year's largely popular 3GS.

T-Mobile USA.  Here's an interesting tidbit.  T-Mo announced it will be bringing HSPA+ (21Mbps) to close to 80 million users by the end of June and will blanket 180 million users by the end of 2010.  Many, including myself, strongly believe Apple will being bring the iPhone over to T-Mobile.

It would make sense now that T-Mobile has also suggested their 3G network is highly scalable and has capacity to grow.  Should Apple grace T-Mobile customers with the iPhone, it'll likely be in the fall when more of the updated 3G network is online.

iPhone mini - Gone Too Soon

The iPhone mini did not sell well the two years in its existence and it may have been the result of an Apple echo chamber of Apple employees...
