Today marked the opening day for iPhone 4 preorders. Today also marked the day that Apple and AT&T sold out of the iPhone 4!
Reports have come in that indicate that AT&T (the exclusive carrier of the iPhone 4 in the USA) and various international partners (UK, Germany) have completely sold out of their iPhone 4 preorders, which means every single black 16/32GB iPhone 4 (white is not available yet).
As a result of this, the ship date has slipped to July 2, 2010 on Apple’s UK Online Store and likely soon to be reflected on Apple’s USA Online Store.
Engadget received a statement from AT&T confirming the sellout:
Because of the incredible interest in iPhone 4, today was the busiest online sales day in AT&T history. As of Tuesday afternoon, customers who preorder iPhone 4 moving forward will receive their device on June 25 or later, depending on when the order is placed. We’ll email customers with confirmation once their order is placed, and again when it ships. In addition, we will have devices available on a first-come, first-serve basis in our stores beginning on June 24.
Is a similar fate coming to Canada? Will the iPhone 4 be pushed back to August 2010, like the iPad was pushed back one month?
