THe exact number of devices available on launch day is a closely-guarded secret (Thanks, Steve). However, I can tell you that 50% of the devices were made available to Apple retail and 50% were made available to AT&T retail. Then they were allocated by region, then market, then district, and finally to store...

Again - I think all stores - Apple & AT&T alike - will sell out by end of businesss Friday night

my two stores say they think they wont sell out friday, and that if they do, Apple is having them do phone orders and that the phone orders will take 2-3 days to get to your home....we'll see...

it's similar to our direct fulfill process, but again, it's limited to available stock

would 50 per store sound about right.i hope they just don't get something like 10 or less.
Aargh... this is a slippery one.


In my region (a large geographic area), I haven't heard of any stores getting as few as 10 (though perhaps close). I know of stores getting more than 150.

I thought that I read somewhere that the inital order was for 2 million phones. Which would average about 100 phones per store if every store were to be shipped the same amount which they are not.

my att person said they are going to keep everyone up to date as to how many phones they have as the night progresses.

i gotta be 100% honest,
i don't think they are gonna sell out...
Apple has been obviously been keeping this a big secret
and yes, the release will be huge...
but think about it....
they are def not worried about losing any money because they are charging us double what it cost them to make...
they will be making a profit after about the first hour i predict...
anyone else agree

As of yesterday afternoon, I was able to look to see how many were on order for my store. All the stores in my area have done the same, and we've communicated our order amounts to one another.

I anticipate my store will sell out before 8pm, depending on how fast we can move customers through the process

att_employee: Are you willing to let us know what region of the country you are posting from? Do you work at a larger city store or a smaller one in the suburbs? Just curious. Thanks.
