AT&T Mobility has already sold out of its pre-order units for the iPhone 3G S, a company spokeswoman confirmed. Customers who didn't immediately sign up for the new iPhone model after it was first announced will now have to wait a week or two after the gadget's launch day--June 19--to get one. The confirmation comes after the blog Boy Genius Report posted a purported AT&T screenshot saying as much.
The spokeswoman said that "if customers pre-ordered from an AT&T store between June 8 and June 12, their orders should be ready for pick up on Friday, June 19. For customers who placed their order on or after June 13, they should receive their devices within 7-14 days." The representative did not say how many devices were on pre-order.
Apple's own stores appear to be running their own pre-order service. And, according to a post on Engadget, Apple has begun shipping the devices out.
Unveiled at Apple's developer conference the iPhone 3G S will cost $199 for the 16GB version and $299 for the 32GB version with a two-year contract from AT&T. The phone will be sold in Apple and AT&T retail stores, as well as Best Buy and Wal-Mart.
