    highly doubting the reliability here..
    but the pounds would be the weight...

    so you would take 2000 and divide it by the iPhone 3G's weight.

    2000 / 133 grams (4.7 ounces) = how many iPhones...

    but i dont think this is real.

    UNLESSS!!!! its pounds = an amount of money.
    in which case, just divide that amount by the cost of the iPhone.

    That is the phone alone. How much will the total box with docs weigh? I agree though, seems really high.

    lets do some quick math here

    an iphone weighs 133g

    lets say with it's packaging it weighs .75lbs

    2666 phones for one att store?

    is this a flagship att store or just some hole in the mall?

    well his 1st thing was an att handout...so common sense would assume he means lbs as in weight units.

    Well (3) iPhone 8gb (first gen) boxes weigh (with phone, sealed box)

    21.6 ounces

    I just weighed them on my food scale

    thus

    7.2 ounces per box (0.45 pounds)

    So 2000 pounds would like rought equal 4444.4444444 (so 4444 iPhones)

    Would there really be 4 thousand plus iPhones?

    lol... i was thinking the same thing...

    but if this guy does have access to tracking info he can probably see the shipping weight. more than likely though that 2000lbs (if true) is part iphone part display crapola. when i worked for at&t we used to get huge (and heavy) cardboard cut outs of the phones and what not upon launch.

    though, 2000lbs sounds very excessive. it's almost certainly B.S.

    the only problem with that answer is he specifically said "att". ATT mobile doesn't exist in the UK. So why would it be in GBP?

    If you speak nicely enough to the manager you should get a decent estimate of stock levels. I know of at least 1 manager I have spoken to who gave an estimate of stock inventory for the previous iPhone launch at a medium town sized O2 shop.

    It's pretty hard to sell out if you're stock room is full of the darn things and you get regular re-ups.
