    That online matrix is wrong. The iphone was sold out at the two stores I went to in the LA area, even though Apple implies otherwise.

    iPhones arrive most days and availability is updated nightly.
    The site shows the status for the next day - not the current inventory status.

    I think the thousands of iPhones on eBay are a result of excellent marketing and supply by Apple. Not only did their marketing create the necessary hype (and one can't ignore the media's job in creating that hype either), but then they backed it up with enough supply to make sure everyone could get one. It's like Willy Wonka keeping enough chocolate bars in the store and every one of them having a golden ticket ... haha. Seriously, though, I think all the eBay phones are a result of numerous "scalpers" assuming that Apple would not have enough supply to meet the hype-created demand and that a fortune was to be made by buying extra phones and immediately putting them on eBay for the expected desperate to purchase once the stores quickly ran dry. I'm laughing my head off about that. Apple has done it right so far. I casually walked into a local Apple store, no line (around 10pm last night), bought my iPhone, activated it painlessly online (with my existing number), and I'm already on my way, enjoying a superb product. I'm brand new to the Apple world, by the way (with the exception of my iPod), and so far, I'm very impressed with the quality and thoughtfulness of the product.

    I actually agree with this and it's a very nice change for once.

    It's a shame that sometimes things get released and people take advantage of the shortage and jack up the price, so it's great to see every can get one for their actual retail price and not get screwed.

    Nothing wrong with being an iHATER but if all the stores had sold out he would have said, "Look at the disaster Apple and AT&T created can't even deliver the product".

    They will sell what the market bears out and IF and this is a BIG if Apple starts doing up dates to the iPHONE apps to improve them they will sell more.

    iPHONE is not perfect but it is a good product.

    Seems pretty straight forward, demand did not outpace supply. I read that at the NY store, within one hour there was no line and you could walk right and buy either the 4 or 8 gig. LOL, can you imagine the people who slept outside for three days.

    How many people have used the phone before they've gone off on a rant? I'm curious.

    I have an Apple store a half a mile from my front door. I walked over on Friday evening just before six because I was curious about whether it was a zoo or not. The line was a block long, about 300 people, I would guess (in a relatively small town, Boulder). I decided to get in line because a friend of mine turned up just as I did, and I thought I'd have a visit with her and then get to see the phone in the flesh.

    50 minutes later, I bought three. I knew I'd own one one pretty soon, but seeing it in the hand made it a no-brainer. I bought the extra two (one on my allotment of two and one on my friend's) on the theory that there would be a buttload of people in Europe and Asia and elsewhere who wanted one and couldn't get it. I sold the extra two on Ebay within 24 hours at a profit that almost paid for my own phone. That was a crapshoot, but I certainly wasn't going to end up selling them at a loss. Anyone who's ever owned a Mac can tell you that he sold it two years down the road for nearly what he paid for it. People who use Apple products love Apple products, by and large. 100,000,000 iPod users are going to take a hard look at the iPhone in a hurry, and so are a lot of other folks.

    Time will tell about how quickly people grab this phone. In the long run, anyone with a brain will be using one. It's very, very good, an order of magnitude better than anything anyone else has produced or is producing. (When have you ever seen the four biggest critics -- Mossberg, Pogue, et. al. -- all say at the same time, "Home run, basically!") And it's going to get a lot better.

    I don't work for Apple. I've had four Treos in seven years. I bought them and used them because they were better than anything else on the market. That's not true anymore.

    Apple stores sold an estimated 128,000 iPhones on the first day, while AT&T stores sold 72,000, said Trip Chowdhry, an analyst with San Francisco-based Global Equities.

    I've no idea how they determined those numbers nor how accurate they are.

    Another numbers estimate from Piper Jaffray in this CNET article. Again, the methodology for estimating the number isn't offered - the estimate for the % of new AT&T customers is by poll.

    Global Equities Research also say around 500 000 for the first weekend.

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Apple Inc. (AAPL.O: Quote,*Profile , Research) sold about 525,000 iPhones at Apple and AT&T Inc. (T.N: Quote,*Profile , Research) stores in the first weekend since its June 29 launch, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday, citing an analyst.

    Half of the Apple stores on the U.S. West Coast sold out of the devices on the first day, the report said, citing analyst Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research in San Francisco.

    Chowdhry could not immediately be reached for comment. Apple and AT&T were not immediately available.

    All of the AT&T stores in Middlesex County are sold out, as well as the Apple store here. Three people came in looking to buy an iPhone while I was at the AT&T store on Sunday. They claimed they had no idea there might be shortages of iPhones...those poor souls.
