AT&T sold out of launch day iPhone 4 pre-orders online

AT&T has confirmed that its website has sold out of its launch day stock of iPhone 4 units. In a statement released to Engadget, the company said, “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.”

Wow that was quick, it’s a good thing that I have managed to pre-order mine this morning. Otherwise I would be SOL…

Am I the only one that would not be surprised if this were by design.

Apple is, first and foremost, a marketing company. And the marketing department is charged with building hype.

I’m sure Apple had a good estimate of how many would sell on the 15th.  I finally got through for the preorder, just one day later, and estimated shipping date is now July 6-8

Thankfully I got in yesterday (FINALLY). I tried AT&T and Apple online for most of the day…finally got it to go through on my iphone via the Apple Store app. So, I’m set for pickup on the 24th at the apple store. Don’t have to go early, don’t have to wait in line…just show up any time that day and I’m golden…wooo-hoooooo!
