iPhone 5 seeing 'dramatic' surge in retail availability
iPhone 5 stocks have seen "dramatic improvements in availability," according to Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster. Last night, a team at Piper conducted checks with 100 US Apple Stores, and found that AT&T models were available at 82 percent of them, while Verizon models were ready at 72 percent. Sprint iPhone 5s were in stock 92 percent of the time.<br><br>The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/273561==http://appleinsider.com/articles/12/11/21/apple-has-nearly-caught-up-with-demand-for-iphone-5" rel='nofollow'>inventory improvements</a> appear to have started around November 6 with a massive surge in AT&T models, eclipsing even the amount of Sprint units on November 9 before settling below that threshold. Sprint iPhones are rarely unavailable, since Sprint is relatively new to carrying the iPhone -- fighting an uphill battle for subscribers -- and still catching up to AT&T and Verizon in terms of network speeds.

The timing of the resupply coincides with Apple's push into Black Friday and the most critical part of the holiday shopping season. <A href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/11/20/apple.makes.slight.progress.in.run.up.to.black.fri day/">Online shipping times have improved as well</a>, though new American and Canadian orders are still only due in two weeks.

Strange. Conversely, the "availability" for the Samsung Galaxy S III seems to be poor. Must be a result of all those SGS III handsets flying off the shelves into consumer hands.

Obvious troll is obvious.

Anybody even vaguely interested in intelligent conversation would at least pick a story and stick to it.
