iPhone supply dwindling in Canada?

The supply of iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS units is running low in Canada’s Rogers Wireless and Fido stores, according to a new report. The Globe and Mail reports that Apple is shipping only limited supplies to Rogers, which claims to be out of both models. “We are out of stock and still taking orders as our inventory continues to come in week to week,” Rogers spokeswoman Liz Hamilton said. “While we have continuous incoming inventory, we are filling back orders on a priority basis and we appreciate the enthusiasm and patience of our customers.” The report notes that several of Apple’s 11 Canadian retail stores report stock of the iPhone, and that some other international markets, including Australia, also appear to have run out of the handset.

Good!  I hope Apple IS limiting supply to Rogers stores.  I’m still very bitter about the release weekend of the iPhone 3G where a store refused to sign me up for an iPhone because I was not a new Rogers customer (claiming the system was down/slow the entire weekend), while easily signing up new customers who were in line behind me.  I ended up getting the phone from Fido instead, who also had no problems.

The stores were playing games with Apple’s customers.  I wish Apple had punished them back then.
