Pre-orders for iPhone are temporarily suspended
AT&T announced early this AM that it has halted pre-orders for the iPhone 4. Both the AT&T website and Apple websites were slammed yesterday, as hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, applied for the pre-order.
Reports of a new ship date are slowing coming to light. Customers are reporting that their iPhone 4 pre-order confirmations are stating the new ship date as July 2. With an estimated 1 in 100 orders being fulfilled yesterday, how will this adversely effect Apple?
It remains to be seen if sales of the EVO and HD2 see a boost in sales during what some have called, “The iPhonecalypse”.

It is the first on AT&T to run Android 2.1 and the first to include HTC’s Sense UI. With a screen size measure a demure 3.2 inches, it’s outmatched by the current generation iPhone and the massive 4.3 inch screen available on the Sprint EVO and T-Mobile HTC HD2.
Of course, all the usual suspects are present. Gmail, Google Maps, Google Nav, YouTube and the Android Market are all pre-installed on the device.
At a price of $199 (a $100 rebate is available), it appears to us that this phone is geared at the entry-level smartphone market. With the drop in price of Apple’s iPhone 3Gs to $99, it reamains to be seen if AT&T customers will consider the HTC Aria as their next mobile device.
