iPhone shortage back, attacks New York
When the Apple iPhone was first released in the US it quickly sold out as Apple tried to keep up with demand. There were soon more than enough iPhones to meet demand and the handset became pretty easy to come by.
Looks like things have changed and the iPhone shortage that has started hitting other parts of the world have now turned on New York where an anonymous Apple Store employee at the West 14th Street location said “it’s been out of stock all week.”
The supply channel is likely drying up because the updated 3G version of the iPhone is expected pretty soon and production is slowing on the current model, but with the new version not expected before June some shoppers might have to decide whether to line up to try and find an iPhone or a Nintendo Wii.
