The very last iPhone 3G at the Stonestown store in south San Francisco was just sold to a guy in a Microsoft shirt!
I’m currently at the Apple store in the Stonestown mall, posting from an in-store computer.
I came down to pick up an iPhone 3G, but the last phone was just sold to this guy in a Microsoft shirt. WTF!
The guy, who is very nice, asked me not to use his name in case he gets into trouble at work. He is a trainer for Microsoft Microsoft trainer who works for a third party company.
Staff here at the Apple store say they have no idea when — or even if — they will get new stock of the iPhone 3G.
The concierge is sending people upstairs to a new AT&T store that is apparently taking preorders. The concierge says there’s likely a 21 day wait however.
I phoned other nearby stores in Sand Francisco and Burlingame, but they are sold out also.
As Lonnie reports below, iPhones are available at only one in four stores, and Piper analyst Gene Munster thinks it will take Apple a month to restock.
