Too much of a good thing July 1, 2007

Posted by reverseengineer in Apple Inc., iPhone.

Apple apparently prepared too well for yesterday’s iPhone launch, and for once, it was a case of supply (amazingly) exceeding demand.

News outlets like Ars Technica report that despite the thousands in line across the US and the manic pace of purchase, plenty of stocks were left at the end of the day. At least this was the case at Apple stores – some AT&T stores ran out of stock, largely because they had smaller allocations. Amazing when you think that (according to one estimate) the things were selling in Apple Stores all over the country at a rate of 30,000 units per hour.

At least everyone went home with one (or two). Everybody happy.

Now with all that supply, couldn’t they throw a few hundred thousand or so over here to our neck of the woods? Pretty please?
