3 Mobile expected to sell out iPhone 3GS just three days after launch

3 Mobile claims "stock shortage" on iPhone 3GS models

3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3G S to be sold out this weekend, just days after its launch.

3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3G S to be sold out this weekend, just days after its launch.

Australian telco 3 has almost sold out of Apple's iPhone 3GS online on the day of launch.

The iPhone 3GS was launched today through 3 stores and online at 3's Web site, but 3 has confirmed the current demand for the smartphone is causing "some stock shortages".

Both the 16GB and 32GB models of the iPhone are already marked as "out of stock" on 3's online store, while the company has confirmed that stock is strictly limited in 3 stores and dealers.

A 3 spokesperson said that 3 expects current stocks of the iPhone 3GS to be sold out over the weekend, although stock of the iPhone 3G 8GB model — offered for free on a $49 cap over 24 months — is still available. 3 hasn't stated when the iPhone 3GS will be back in stock.

3 has set up a pre-registration portal for customers interested in purchasing an iPhone 3GS. 3 will contact consumers via email or SMS when stocks are available.

The stock shortage comes on the back of yesterday's announcement that 3 was dropping its monthly repayment prices on almost all iPhone plans.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
