16GB iPhone sold out in UK
Stock of the 16GB iPhone has run out at third-party retailer Carphone Warehouse, says British newspaper The Guardian. This means that Carphone has completely sold out of the iPhone, as the 8GB version very recently sold out, and the company says that it has no intention of replenishing stocks in anticipation of a new iPhone expected during the summer. The same is said to be true of official UK carrier O2, although the company should still have some 16GB phones in its inventory.
It is rumored in fact that Apple itself has stopped the manufacture of first-generation iPhones, a little over a month before the company's WWDC conference in San Francisco, where it is widely believed that Apple will announce a 3G iPhone for launch in late June or early July. New regions may also be announced, such as Canada, Belgium and Australia.
