Apple has seen high demand for their new smartphones, particularly the iPhone 5s. Apple's new iPhones went on sale this morning. While Apple did not release any numbers, something typically done after the first full weekend of sales, they said that some models of the 5s were sold out, according to All Things D.
Along with the excitement the impending iPhone 5s launch is bringing to the world, there continues to be the lingering thoughts of how many there will be out there to buy. Apple doesn't talk publicly about such numbers, but whispers still find their way out into the open. The latest to chime in are carrier sources of AllThingsD, that suggest their inventory for launch isn't that hot.
It looks like Best Buy is trying to offload some iPad 2 inventory on their internal employee auction website ahead of the iPad 3 launch, which is expected to be announced on March 7th with a high-resolution Retina display, quad-core processor and possible 4G LTE support.
Online shipping estimates for the iPad 2 have now dropped to 2-3 weeks. This comes just a few weeks after shipping estimates jumped to 3-4 weeks shortly after the iPad 2 became available in the US. The estimates reflect both US and international availability and go for all 18 models including the Verizon and AT&T 3G options.
