O2 sites crashes with 3G iPhone demand

O2's site went down this week due to the massive demand for iPhones.

When the initial iPhone was announced O2 has 35,000 initial web inquiries, with the 3G variant they had 200,000 inquiries.

O2 say that Apple is restricting supplies and they may have difficulties satisfying demand.

The iPhone is still considered a consumer phone even with its push email and VPN capabilities, though O2 has announced business tariffs.

RIM's new Blackberry Bold (which seems to be delayed until August) has missed a trick as it could have caused a dent to Apple's launch, especially as it now has the iTunes (iPod) client software built-in.
