    Default Everything Must Go! iPhone 3G "Sold Out"



    You can almost picture Steve Jobs wearing a bad 1970's era leisure suit announcing during a late night TV infomercial that "all things must go!" to clear the inventory and make way for a dazzling new product. That's the image that's popping into some folks' heads today (or at least mine), as word gets around that AT&T is reportedly sold out of the iPhone 3G.

    Next Monday, at the kick-off of WWDC 2010, Apple CEO Steve Jobs is expected to unveil the 4th generation iPhone. Chance are, you've heard about this by now. What you may have not yet heard, however, is information contained in a report this morning that was gleaned from a leaked internal memo from AT&T asserting that inventories of the 8GB iPhone 3G is completely depleted.

    According to the BGR today, "You had a really, really good run iPhone 3G. We’ll miss you." While it wouldn't make sense to mass produce and stock the iPhone 3G so close to a next-gen product launch, the timing of the depletion suggests the likely marketplace arrival of the new iPhone is imminent. That is, the 4th generation iPhone could begin turning up in Apple and AT&T stores in weeks rather than months. And given what feels to have been an exorbitant wait time for this latest iPhone roll out, that's music to the ears of many Apple fans waiting to upgrade or delve into the iPhone market for the first time.

    Industry expectations now widely reflect the notion that the iPhone 3G will be permanently discontinued, with the $99 iPhone slot likely getting filled with 2009's iPhone 3GS.

    Whoop de F'n do. It ran it's corse. Let it rest in peace and move on. Hopefully Knucklehead Steve won't go backwards again in memory and introduce a 16gig 4g. Should not be less then 32gig.

    Sounds good to me! Hopefully the 3gs will drop to $99, then I'll pick one up.

    Much cheaper to stay a gen behind.

    Ehh...sounds pretty retarded to me.
    I mean, the price point will probably be $199-$299 for the Mk. IIII - and that's only $100-$200 more, which in the grand scheme of things isn't much.

    Actually no it is more than that. You also get two more years of ATT (if you are with them). For the sake of it I will use the low end of available packages but will include the unlimited data...

    $30.00 data + $49.99 voice + $5.00 200 txt package a month x 24 months ($325.00 ETF if you cancel straight away)

    = $2,039.76

    I would argue it is much cheaper to get an iPod Touch 3G. Most buying iPhones are going to have a cell carrier of some kind. While the subsidized phones are some what cheap the investment is not at all cheap.

    no.. shouldn't be less than 16g. 16g is fine for your average person who can't afford a 32g+ model.

    So long to the 4G forerunner, he led well!

    I'd take the 3G or 3GS over that ugly 4G any day. I hope the 4G ends up better than the pictures and video leaks.
