AT&T has already sold out of the new Apple iPhone 4 in both 16 and 32 gig capacities.
Engadget reported that, Apple and AT&T have had processing iPhone 4 pre-orders today, but lots of people are seeing a July 2 ship date at Apple’s online store, or about a week after the next-gen iPhone launches on June 24. Frankly, that’s amazing, we can only imagine the kind of sustained rush it took to cause a sellout of a product virtually no one was actually able to order. So that’s Apple and AT&T both sold out -at this point it’s looking like standing in line somewhere come launch day is going to be your best bet, but we’ll let you know if we hear any better news.
“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 the 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.”
The UK Apple Store is also showing first-day allocations are all gone; the website shows July 2 as the next delivery date for new pre-orders.
As of 10:45pm ET, we’re getting reports that the US Apple Store has changed the availability date for new pre-orders to July 2. It’s still set to June 24.
