No matter how you slice it, moving 500,000 units of anyproduct during its inaugural weekend launch is big. According to GeneMunster, analyst at Piper Jaffray, that's exactly what Apple's iPhonemanaged to pull off. After originally expecting Apple to sell "only"200,000 iPhones on Friday and Saturday, he's now estimating that Applesold a half-million iPhones from start of sales at 6pm on Friday untilclose of business on Sunday even with supply issues at AT&T store.According to their survey, 95% of buyers purchased the 8GB model with50% of all buyers making the switch from another carrier to AT&T.Great news right? Maybe, but in a potentially worrying trend, Apple isshowing a marked decrease in iPhone availability at their retaillocations this morning. While stores showed a 100% iPhone availability(they don't break it down by 4GB and 8GB models) on Saturday whichdropped to 84% on Sunday, Apple's retail channel is showing a furtherdecline in availability for Monday across Apple's brick and mortarretail business. In particular, Californians not living in SanFrancisco will have a tough time locating the device with 34 of 36stores bleeding red on Apple's retail locator site-- a potential supply problem especially if AT&T shops remain voidof product. Sure, you can still order on-line albeit with that same 2-4 week delivery delay we've seen since day 1.
