3 Mobile expected to sell out iPhone 3GS just three days after launch

3 Mobile claims "stock shortage" on iPhone 3GS models

3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3G S to be sold out this weekend, just days after its launch.

3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3G S to be sold out this weekend, just days after its launch.

Australian telco 3 has almost sold out of Apple's iPhone 3GS online on the day of launch.

The iPhone 3GS was launched today through 3 stores and online at 3's Web site, but 3 has confirmed the current demand for the smartphone is causing "some stock shortages".

Both the 16GB and 32GB models of the iPhone are already marked as "out of stock" on 3's online store, while the company has confirmed that stock is strictly limited in 3 stores and dealers.

A 3 spokesperson said that 3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3GS to be sold out over the weekend, although stock of the iPhone 3G 8GB model — offered for free on a $49 cap over 24 months — is still available. 3 hasn't stated when the iPhone 3GS will be back in stock.

3 has set up a pre-registration portal for customers interested in purchasing an iPhone 3GS. 3 will contact consumers via email or SMS when stocks are available.

The stock shortage comes on the back of yesterday's announcement that 3 was dropping its monthly repayment prices on almost all iPhone plans.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
