Since there are reports that this is such a big preorder launch and there now seems to be a little chaos with shipping times, I think there may be a conceivable notion that Apple is telling each of the carriers to expect less-than-promised phones for launch day. Seems Apple may be telling them this in order to appease anyone using the Apple website or the Apple app to order, but had major issues getting an order done. Many of us here at MacRumors noted that the Apple online store took a couple of hours to go live, while the Apple mobile app let sporadic orders complete throughout the morning. Apple direct is still holding at 3-4 weeks delivery, while carriers such as AT&T are showing delivery well into November for some phones ordered within a couple hours of preorders going live. I think Apple may be bulking up supply to their stores in anticipation of people not accepting the current delivery times for online ordering and showing up in bigger than anticipated crowds looking to score a launch day phone. Thoughts?
