Cease-and-desist targets iPhone 'end of life' rumor

updated 10:50 am EDT, Mon June 8, 2009

'End of life' rumor valid?

The Australian website that leaked a memo concerning low iPhone stock in the country has received a cease-and-desist order, its owner claims. Anthony Agius has refused to say which party issued the notice, but it is believed to be either the memo's circulator, Vodafone, or the carrier's regional supplier, Brightpoint. Apple could also be involved, given mention of its products.

The order may effectively confirm dwindling iPhone stocks, as companies rarely issue cease-and-desists over inaccurate reports. Apple is believed to have been trying to purge iPhone 3G stocks for weeks, with the aim of clearing inventory in advance of new models. An announcement of updated iPhones is anticipated later today, at the opening keynote for WWDC 2009.

    When will these lawyers learn that C&D letters give a story another wave of coverage and added credibility? If they were smart, they'd ignore these little links.

    Ya Ignore

    Ya, they have to ignore it now that Apple has said the 3G will continue to be sold! I'm betting they will sell more 3G models then the new 3G-S models based on the lower price of $99.00
