I think Apple could put out enough iPhones to maintain stock in Apple and AT&T stores, but they’re choosing not to. They’re pulling a Wii.
I think a big part of the allure of the Wii was the fact that you couldn’t find one for months. It’s a simple matter of wanting things we can’t have. And it’s happening now with the iPhone 3G as well.
Do you know when you’re getting some in?
No way to know…we had a shipment yesterday but they sold out in 11 minutes. And we got a couple in today, but they were special ordered and have already been picked up…
This builds desire, and it’s a tactic that melds perfectly with Apple’s elitist, “I’m special” marketing strategy.:
