Here we go, there seems to be no end to this Apple & AT&T mess. These past 48 hours have been awful for both companies and for consumers. Now, the delay for new orders before used to be July 2nd, bad enough right? Wrong. Now, as of a few moments ago, Apple changed it to July 14th.
This is not good.
To me, this signals production issues with the iPhone 4 and making enough of them. Now, Apple has this same exact issue with it’s super popular iPad.
Has Apple become a victim of it’s own success? I think so. Apple needs to double production by negotiating with Foxcon and having another company working on Apple’s devices.
Stockholders will not like this news one bit, despite the iPhone 4’s amazing success on it’s very awful and poorly prepared pre-order day, it looks like if Apple can’t speed up production, then they can’t sell as much as they could.
