iPhone 3G Availability Tracker

If you’re wondering whether it might be a good time to head to the nearest Apple Store to join the queue for a new iPhone, the folks at Top Muffin offer a comprehensive iPhone Availability Tracker.

The page is powered by data from Apple’s own availability widget and is updated every 15 minutes. The accuracy of Apple’s availability information has been questioned by some in the chaotic first two weeks since the 3G model launch, prompting Top Muffin to recommend calling stores first to confirm stock on-hand.

    Here’s an idea; why not make this into an iPhone-3G-only application for the iTunes App Store. That way you can use your iPhone to work out when you can buy one. Oh wait…

    Apple killed it. Go look at the site now.

    “Evidently, Apple did not like their 3G iPhone availability data being used outside of apple.com. They have changed all inventory values to NULL in their JSON file. I guess it beats a cease-and-desist letter.”
