UK iPod demand high
Apple's iPod saw unprecedented demand this holiday season, and the devices are still highly sought after in Northern Ireland. Retailers are reporting that the devices are , with all models in high demand. The Sprucefield and Bangor PC World outlets together had only two iPods to offer, and both were display models. Currys are completely out of all iPod stock, and Dixons in Belfast has only a few models remaining. Both PC World stores have depleted supplies of both iPod models they stock, with just two black 2GB Nanos remaining as of yesterday afternoon, according to a report from the Belfast Telegraph. Ross Telford, marketing assistant with Laser Electrical, said the problem was simply supply outstripping demand--a problem not limited to Northern Ireland.
