So you might be wondering how many stores will be carrying the iPhone when it comes out. I think it’s been pretty safe to say that all of the Apple stores will be carrying the iPhone, but just how many AT&T stores will have the phone stocked at release?
According to a meeting Apple had with Bear Stearns analyst Andrew Neff that it will be carried at 2,000 retail outlets when it is launched in June. So if we break that down, we’ll see the iPhone at all 160 Apple stores, and 1840 AT&T stores. Last time I checked, AT&T only had roughly 2,000 stores. So it’s safe to say that a store near you will be carrying it.
Now if they would just tell us how many units will be available per store we could get a good estimate of how likely people are going to be to get their hands on one.
