The Issue: Looking for an iPhone in the UK? Keep looking. Apple’s exclusive iPhone carriers in UK, O2 and partner Carphone Warehouse, have announced "iPhone No Longer Available."
The Story: In an attempt to clear inventory prior to the release of the 3G capable iPhone 2.0, O2 had dropped their prices from $525 to $330 on the 8GB iPhone. Clearly, their plan has worked.
Here’s what Carphone Warehouse’s online iPhone store says (notice the red Xs) :
And O2 gave a more general announcement:
Notice however, that the 16GB is still available.
Importance: O2 out of 8GB iPhones? And instead of forseeing the shortage they went as far as to announce the empty inventory on their sites? They are obviously bracing for the iPhone 2.0. What this means to you? iPhone 2.0 coming very soon.
What says the…
Geek: Thank god I don’t live in England.
Socialite: Those Brits better not get the iPhone 2.0 before we do.
Soccer Mom: That reminds me, we’re out of milk.
