    Default Inventory 'Dwindling' Ahead of International iPhone 5 Launch


    Within its first few days of availability, Apple sold an estimated five million units of the newest generation iPhone. And, as a result, supply took an enormous hit as crushing demand showed - and continues to show - no sign of decreased momentum.

    Unfortunately for Apple, the demand burden will only be amplified in the coming hours as Apple prepares to introduce the iPhone 5 to nearly two dozen additional countries across multiple large and small wireless carriers in those particular geographic locations.

    Although Apple isn't speaking to the rumor, it is speculated that the iPhone 5 could be immensely difficult to come by this weekend as first-run stockpiles rapidly dwindle.

    On Friday, the iPhone 5 will arrive in 22 new countries. They include: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

    Compounding the supply crunch in North America, the iPhone 5 is also launching tomorrow across multiple smaller carriers in the US. As of Friday, you can get the iPhone 5 through such carriers as Cricket, C Spire, Bluegrass Cellular, Cellcom, GCI, Golden State Cellular, Nex-Tech Wireless, Pioneer Wireless, Appalachian Wireless, MTA Solutions, and Alaska Communication Systems and nTelos.

    eh by then hopefully we'll have a untethered JB, so no big deal imo - I'm happy with my ip4 until an untethered comes along.

    Lol. So true. It's just crazy that it can be shown that it can be done but the public release will be months away.

    for me i'd rather have a stable reliable JB 3 months down the road than an unstable one or tethered now. (specially since A5 and prob A6 devices won't be able to go backwards or restore to JB firmware like in iOS5)
