No, it's not 'sold out since yesterday'.
It's 'sold out since several weeks ago'.

They had a certain amount of phones to ship - 500 to 1000, and they knew 
at least when the next lot of phones could be possibly available.

They had someone working through a pile of phones, shipping them out.

It does not take a genius to work out that with 2000+ orders, that they 
are not going to be able to meet orders.

This needs to be communicated to potential developers in a timely 
fashion, not once the guy sticking the labels on realises that he's out 
of boxes.
