Apple Removes iPhone 4 Bumpers from Online Store
In presumably a move to make sure they have enough iPhone 4 bumper cases stockpiled for the iPhone 4 bumper case giveaway over the iPhone 4 antenna issue, it appears that Apple has stopped offering the bumper cases via the Apple Online Store.
According to an article over on Information Week by Paul McDougall, the previously offered $ 29 iPhone Bumper case is now showing $0.00 and is also unavailable for purchase.
Steve Jobs did state during the Apple press conference that every iPhone 4 user would receive a free bumper case to resolve the antenna issue, although they simply couldn’t manufacture enough quick enough.
So it would appear that Apple has now halted offering the bumper for sale as it gears up for that iPhone 4 bumper giveaway which should begin this week and is said to cost Apple a cool $175 million.
