I was at the Apple store at Victoria gardens in Rancho Cucamonga, CA yesterday. They were out of all iPhone 3GS's on opening and people were expressing interest all day. I am not sure if they were taking reservations from those people, but if not, they should have.

We are still in the shortage phase of this product launch. Generally it takes about 4 weeks of solid shipping to catch up. If it takes longer than that with the increased production rate of the 3GS as compared to the G, then we have a bigger hit than anyone predicted.
