i plan on getting whatever new iphone comes out next week. from what i read it's going to be announced tuesday and mabye a week later come out to purchase. question is are these iphones going to be sold out for a couple months once they are released? or will i be able to walk into a bell store or some other phone carrier and pick one up the next day or two after being released?
i'm moving on from my blackberry and want to try out the iphone i got someone taking over my current contract with my blackberry but i don't want to give up my current phone untill i get the new iphone as i use them for work and such.

It will likely be sold out for at least 2 weeks and then it will be in pretty short supply. A few days after the announcement, call Bell and ask about ordering. You may be able to get it for the release date.

It will also depend on the kind of (r)evolution Apple will propose.
We can imagine that if it's an iPhone "4S", there will be much less demand compared to a really innovative iPhone 5 ...
So short supply for sure, but more or less ;-)

The polls are already showing more people than ever before ready to buy the next iPhone, and especially with iMessage and all the blackberry users finally defecting from the platform... This iPhone is gonna be a big one, regardless.

I wouldn't consider dual-core, 1GB ram, backlit sensor camera, 64GB storage, etc. small upgrades... And whatever they do, Apple is going to spin it in a way that it is amazing in terms of marketing. Make no mistake, this iPhone is going to sell even more than the iPhone 4 did, and I'd bet big money on that prediction.
It may not best the 4 to the same degree that the 4 bested the 3GS, but it will.

Apple - iOS 5 - See new features included in iOS 5.
I'm sure it will sell I just figured they would do a re-design since it's been 1.5yr since the last phone. Didn't realize it took 1.5yr for a major company to add 1GB of RAM, a camera other phones have and a dual-core.
Either way, I'm sure this thing will fly out of stores once available

3.5 months is now half a year! The earth must've gotten a lot closer to the sun, then!
