iPhones flood east coast, west coast dry

iPhone availability

While iPhone availability has improved dramatically since launch day on the east coast, with most localities having ample stock of the device, the west coast is still parched with most Apple retail outlets still sold out. A check of Apple's availability page shows the no California, Washington, or Oregon stores currently have stock of the iPhone. New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts stores, meanwhile, are relatively flush. Southern states are mixed, with Florida and Georgia offering decent stock but Texas remaining sold out statewide. Users searching for online purchase are out of luck too: the online Apple Store is still showing a 2-4 week wait for both 4GB and 8GB models.

Apple has reportedly sold between 500,000 and 700,000 iPhone since launch, though some analysts were expecting a million. Regardless, the sales figures crush any previous AT&T offering, including the wildly popular Motorola RAZR. AT&T Retail stores sold out of their initial stock within hours of launch. See our overview of the iPhone's functionality.

    The Apple Stores in New York were mostly sold out for days on end. The fact that they got replenished on Thursday was a pleasant surprise (their flagship NYC store on 5th avenue is still sold out)

    Re: iphone

    Yeah, you'd think Electonista would be the place for that. then again, I think the only way people go there is from links on macnn....

    And with floods in the east, and the west socked in an drought of major proportions, I think this is just more proof of the effects of global warming!

    iPhone is a Mac

    I love the iPhone because it is so Mac-Like. My next vacation I will not be taking my Macbook Pro as I now have my iPhone to check email, browse the web, check my calendar, use google maps and watch movies. Since I got a 12GB card for my Nikon D200 - I don't need to download images to my laptop.

    The iPhone is an Apple product and tied to the Mac in so many ways, I love the coverage.

    re:iPhone (tortenteufel)

    Maybe you should read the "mission statement" of MacNN:

    The Macintosh News Network is the premier source for Macintosh and iPod news, reviews, discussion, tips, troubleshooting, links, and reviews. MacNN publishes dozens of news stories related to Apple, iTunes, iPod, and the Mac industry, tracking the latest developments in the computer, Apple-related, Mac, online music, and iPod markets.

    Please quit whining about MacNN covering those topics that MacNN has chosen to cover. if you don't like a topic MacNN is covering, don't read it.

    Re: sales expectations

    How can you cite an Apple "basher" source as "expecting a million", which is totally bogus, while stating "Apple has reportedly sold between 500,000 and 700,000 since the launch", which is also false. Check the reports of 1 million AT&T activations! You have succeeded in inserting erroneous FUD in an otherwise straightforward report.

    Re: sales expectations

    Neither of those figures are believable, since they're just "reports". Why is the 500,000 bogus yet the million isn't? Just because its bigger?

    Maybe that million includes some people who didn't buy an iPhone last weekend, but bought other phones. Or it includes people who activated twice (due to issues the first time, or that the first was later killed because you can't transfer over a business account) or loads of other reasons (not the least of which is people pulling numbers out of their a**, which is where most, if not all, of the numbers that we've seen have come from.

    And are you counting the half-dozen people who've returned their iPhone because it doesn't come in a cool 'zune-like Brown' color? I didn't think so...

    Re: mission statement

    Maybe you didn't realize, but the iPhone's not an iPod. Maybe they should change their mission statement.

    And, everyone, then please try to remember thiis statement when you're ready to complain about MacNN posting some news about Windows, Zunes, or anything else that you are about to complain doesn't belong here because its not specifically about Apple/Macs (they still make Macs, right?)
