Is Apple’s inability to satisfy demand.
The iPhone 4 was launched in Canada more than two months ago and I’ve yet to get one. All the Rogers stores in area are out of them. They can’t keep them in stock. Each store is getting a measly 5-10 units per week; and each store has a 200-long waiting list. I’ve been told that Bell stores as well as Telus stores have the same problem.
Apple introduced the iPad in April and sold over three millions within the first quarter. Rumours also said that Apple has ramped up its production of the revolutionary tablet to three millions per month.
I connected my iPhone to my Mac at 1:30pm EST to charge it and iTunes announced the availability of version 4.0 of iOS.
The 292 MB update is downloading as I type this. How exciting!
There aren’t many new features for my 3G iPhone (no multi-tasking, no facetime, no video editing), but still, there is enough in there to make it worthwhile. The unified mailbox is a long awaited feature (I have nearly 10 different mailboxes on my iPhone).
Apple announced today that they have sold more than 2 million iPads since its launch on April 3, 2010.
Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO and co-founder posted an article detailing the reasons why Apple refuses to allow Flash on the iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad. It’s an enlightening read. If you’re interested in the iPhone platform, this makes a compelling read.
