iPhone will be available in the UK again – Macitynet.it
The news of the unavailability of the iPhone in both the 8 GB version and the 16 GB model that left the United Kingdom this morning and spread quickly on the Internet. Until a few hours ago there was no hope of finding an iPhone in an O2 store and Carphone Warehouse, while iPhone remained available at full price only through the Apple Stores. Numerous websites have reported the news presuming a total block of supplies of the current iPhone model in view of the imminent launch of the new 3G model. Macity covered the topic in this article today.
Representatives of O2 and Carphone Warehouse announced a little while ago that new iPhone supplies are arriving or already present in the stores. The O2 spokesman announces that the 16 GB model will also be supplied soon for online purchases, this morning without both models. While for the points of sale of the mobile telephone operator it is learned that small quantities of iPhones are still available in the flagship stores. The spokesperson for Carphone Warehouse also announces that other 16 GB iPhones have been ordered to supply the chain's stores, while the situation for the online shop is currently being studied.
The £ 100 GB discount on the 8 GB iPhone, which brought the initial price from £ 269, around 340 euros, to the new price of only £ 169, around 215 euros, kicked off a rush to purchases and the consequent exhaustion stocks for this model. The promotion remains valid until June 1st, so we think a few days after the presentation of the new iPhone. A substantial supply of the discounted model for the points of sale seems unlikely, given the risk of stocks when the new model appears
