The carrier noted last week that sales of the device were blowing away expectations and it seems he telling the truth.
Amazon also has the cyan version back-ordered, although they do have stock of the black model. Calls to AT&T brick-and-mortar stores revealed most are sold out in-store, as well.
It is unclear whether the news is good or bad for Microsoft and Nokia. If the sell out is due to large demand then certainly the companies will be excited by the prospects. However, if the sell out is a supply-side issue, there may be more problems we do not know about.
There was an early software glitch that affected handsets trying to access the Internet and AT&T has admitted that many affected users simply returned their devices, which would also have an affect on current inventory.
Nokia has since issued a fix for the glitch.
