iPhoneX shipping now 5-6 weeks

Stock was sold out within 30 minutes (4-5 weeks), it's now 5-6 weeks.

It's Apple's game to lose. Just like Samsung's spectacular failed bet to beat Apple to a slim, bezel-free phone with the Note7, Google's new phones have an Achilles' heel (poorer OLED screen made by LG instead of Samsung).

If Apple's bet that they 1) have picked the right hardware manufacturers with the balance of quality, at scale and price and 2) Apple's new camera is at least as good as the Galaxy 8 3) FaceID doesn't suck and 4) getting used to a phone without a home button isn't too hard to learn.

Then I think Apple will have a blockbuster product that will be supply constrained for many months,

I tried to buy right when the page went live. But there was no way to buy one unless you are already with one of the Big 4 carriers; no SIM free models for sale as yet.

So I then tried to buy a Verizon one (since that's my carrier) but I was shut out of that too since my Verizon service is through my employer.

This whole mobile phone structure in the US is fscked.

Really? Starting to explain your puns? C'mon, Newt; you're better than that.

Got a 7 last spring on the Apple new every year plan. So about the time that's been paid down a year (which is how long you have to wait - unless you pre pay up to one year) the X should finally be landing in stores. The 7 in gloss black wasn't generally available until almost February. Expect a similar landing date (or even later) for X.
