    It's been showing 2 weeks for the past 12 hours. I was wondering when it would get pushed back some more.

    It'll be at 3-4 weeks by tomorrow morning, then 4-6 weeks by the end of the weekend, then "November" early next week.

    Low initial supply due to display problems from Sharp. The PR spin: We're blown away with the demand. Same thing happens every time to produce an urgency to preorder. Apple Marketing. Sorry, not falling for it for the 5th time.

    Yes, Apple is denying themselves the opportunity to make even more gobs of money by limiting initial supply.

    :rolleyes:

    If they knew they were going to be short on supply from the start, do you think they would have gone for such an aggressive international rollout? Seems kinda foolish. Besides, the reality of whether they had insufficient supply or just unprecedented demand will become obvious anyway when they announce this quarter's financial results.

    My feeling is they will hit an all time record for sales this time.

    I was on the fence this morning around 8am CST about even getting the 5.. I saw the Apple Store at 2wks and said screw it.. Then right before I got in the shower I tried AT&Ts site and luckily got in for 9/21. If people have the time and energy come 9/21 they can probably find an iPhone 5 at a brick and mortar Apple store if not some other random place like Walmart or RadioShack.

    Like I said, because of the delay of components, the initial supply was probably limited. So PR spun it up to being "blown away."

    ----------

    They sold out in one hour. I'm seriously doubtful their systems where able to process that amount of orders under an hour. My feeling is they didn't have that many units to begin with.

    It's hard to say. They surely expanded their server capacity for the Apple Store since last year, particularly with the record number of international countries for this launch. We'll know when the next quarterly report comes out.
