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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GE63 Raider

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
