Huge number of Brits may be selling mobiles ahead of iPhone 4 purchase

Record numbers of people could be selling their used mobile phones and investing in an iPhone 4, if a study is anything to go by.

V3.co.uk conducted research yesterday (June 24th) as the revolutionary device was released in the UK, visiting retail outlets to check how sales were going.

The website concludes that stocks of the device have already dried up, as unprecedented demand for a mobile phone kicked in.

It says Orange, Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U all sold out of iPhone 4 handsets within hours of opening.

Indeed, the only outlet to have some available was O2, but here representatives of the website found a sizeable queue had gathered to snap them up.

None of the stores visited had the white version of the phone available, after Apple admitted it has proven more difficult to manufacture.

Vodafone, Orange, O2, T-Mobile, Tesco and Three are all offering packages to consumers hoping to join the iPhone 4 revolution soon.
