Fight brewing between O2 and Apple over iPhone 3G shortages?
Maybe the boxing gloves are being readied between O2 and Apple over supplies of the iPhone 3G. Although O2 has dismissed any suggestion that they are on a collision course with Apple over iPhone 3G stock shortages.
The problem apparently is while Apple seemingly has an abundant supply of the iconic mobile handset, O2 and Carphone Warehouse seems to have been left out in the cold, and left waiting a lengthy time for a second delivery.
Apparently a source has revealed that “O2 has been put on a back foot by Apple’s plan.”
An O2 spokesperson was quick to deny that the problem has caused resentment between O2 and Apple, and says: “Apple can’t do upgrades in their store, so that’s one of the reasons we have sold out more quickly. Every O2 store in the country had stock. We were expecting a huge demand and we’re confident that we will fulfil demand by the end of the summer.”
It appears the disaster of iPhone Friday coupled with the problems of low stock along with both Apple and O2 system glitches hasn’t put people off or reduced the high demand for the Apple iPhone 3G.
Are you satisfied? Has the O2 store near you run out of iPhone stock? If so let us know about it.
