    How can this be "sooner than we thought"

    weve known for a while now that the stores are sold out and this means that maybe they are getting rid of iphone v1 to replace stocks with v2. And with the news that att employees are not allowed to take leave between the dates mentioned in the other thread, its probable that the v2 will be released sometime in that time window.

    It really just doesn't add up. They would still need time to get the phone through the FCC after they announce it, and I doubt that they're just going to stop selling the iphone for 4-6 weeks, maybe longer.

    No other product update has ever gone quite like this either. I don't recall a shortage of iPods before they were all updated to their current lineup.

    The theory that Apple has gone soft on us and has actually started looking out for the customer is BS. There are much better solutions to the "i bought my iphone 2 days before it was upgraded" problem than stopping production and sales completely weeks and weeks in advance of the actual release.

    This shortage is really nothing more than that infamous Apple marketing style. They're creating above-average demand for what will surely be a more expensive iPhone when it's released. Psychology 101, everyone wants what they can't have.

    does it? i was exicted the day before the SDK was released because I thought that they were gonna release SDK and AppStore that same day. apple are sneaky how they release some software for first gen iphones on the day that the second gen is relesed

    This is the best marketing tool available.
