Well, I was in Portland, Oregon yesterday at one of the Apple stores. I needed to buy a couple of iPhones. (I can't wait any longer for various reasons). Well, this particular Apple store only had two 8gb models in stock. They didn't have any 16gb models in stock. The same is true with the other 2 Portland stores: No iPhones in stock. I called 3 of the 4 stores in Seattle. All 3 stores are without iPhones. One employee said that all of Washington state is without iPhones, except for AT&T stores. Another person said that the entire west coast is out of inventory. I called an Apple store in San Francisco. No iPhones. I called an Apple store in Los Angeles. No iPhones. "All of Southern California is out of stock of iPhones." At least 2 employees (at WA or OR stores) thought that it was a shipping fluke. One said it was demand related. One employee didn't want to take a guess as to what the problems was. Another employee suspected that maybe a new iPhone was coming out... but really had no idea and wasn't permitted to speculate anyway. I attempted to call stores in Colorado and Texas (random sampling) and the stores I called were already closed for the day. (Sunday night, March 30, 2008). So... hmmmm. It seems too early for a new model of iPhone to be coming out. I was thinking that maybe in 2 - 3 months we MIGHT see a new model (3G or some other type of upgrade). But, who knows? It could just be a glitch in the shipping or ???? Any other areas without iPhones? I saw a post about a store in NYC being out of iPhones too.
