I was buying an iPhone 5 for my sister's Christmas present this year, and although I do not like to shop WalMart, was intrigued by the deal they purported to offer.  I wanted a 64 GB ATT Black model, and called several stores in my area (Central NJ).  All of them reported having "no iPhone 5" stock at all.  It was telling that the deal was only for in store purchases and not available from their website either.  I can only imagine the amount of people they suckered into...
This could be a new business line for RIM.  They can sell cases to make iPhones look like BlackBerrys so they don't get stolen.  
Looks like Apple, the beleaguered device maker isn't cutting orders back enough to match the lack of demand they are experiencing across all markets. /s
Apple is doomed as the beleaguered device manufacturer continues to struggle all over the world* *to meet insane demand
The iPhone 5 has only been available since the end of September, so an unlocked version is at max two months late. As for the iPhone in general, launched in 2007, but I know for a fact that at the very least the iPhone 4 and 4S have been available unlocked from Apple.
That is fair.  But Office does not necessarily need to be tied to Windows RT, my prediction is that after the Surface crashes and burns in the marketplace, MS will release Office for the iPad, and probably sell 20 million copies, and actually make a good profit at it.  They should have just done this in the first place.
  Windows RT doesn't fit into the enterprise any better.  In fact, it will be worse since there are already systems in place at most corporations to handle iPads.  Many companies have already developed their own custom apps for iPads.  In this case, the hurdle will be to support the Surface.
  The real question is who would want to?  Every printer I use has wireless capability.  Even people in our office with desktop computers don't even want wired keyboards or mice.  All these ports are just a waste of space and expense, and added weight for a device that is supposedly ultra-portable.
  I tried to find redeeming qualities of the Surface, I really did, however, they overlooked things which I would have expected MS to provide in order to make their product fit in better in Microsoft centered enterprises.  If they even tried, they failed miserably.  NO Outlook, NO AD, NO Remote Desktop.  Also, MS tends to abandon their products, so I have no confidence that they have the fortitude to stick with this if sales are disappointing.  Remember Kin, Windows Phone...
Meanwhile Surface estimated ship times range from 1-3 weeks.  Which is pretty much the same as the practical amount of time you will wait if you put in an order for an iPhone now.
