Apple US Online Store – reads: “Ships: Currently Unavailable”
iPhones have been in high demand recently and the lack of stock in both US and UK Apple stores is not helping the problem. The iPhone is one of the most sought-after devices of the year and both retail and online stores are having their supplies dry up. Many believe this is due to Apple’s expected announcement of the 3G iPhone next month.
Apple seems to be clearing out their old stock while keeping the demand high and people buzzing about the device, because when that 3G iPhone hits store shelves, all hell is going to break loose. I know many iPhone owners who are expecting to toss their current device in exchange for its expected 3G brethren. With a following like this, Apple will likely see a high rate of iPhone sales in the coming months – especially if they drop a 32GB version into the market like they have with the iPod Touch.

Expect some big announcements from Apple in the next while, and try to stay away from purchasing an iPhone in the following weeks. You’ll either be disappointed when the 3G phone drops due to the speed, or the fact that you could’ve gotten the current version for a lot cheaper when Apple truly clears all stock.
But I want to know, do you currently have an iPhone? and will you be buying a 3G iPhone when they are released? Sound off in the comments below.
