from what I've heard this is more an issue with the supply from HTC, rather than anything either O2 or Microsoft have control over.
Looks to be europe wide, I know there are supply issues in Ireland as well as the UK.
No launch point of sale from o2, complete lack of advertising from microsoft.... I only knew it was out as I've been checking - contrast that with all the news items, print articles , blogs, and advertising for the iphone 4 launch!
Device supply down to HTC is fair enough but they aren't the only ones launching handsets today, and I have a feeling there's a mountain in a warehouse somewhere ( trying to decode my seriel using the hex convert method hasn't worked to give me a build date). Lack of PR is a microsoft/HTC/o2 issue ( in that order), lack of training/knowledge instore is down to o2/microsoft. The store I bought from had 2 at 9am and 2 when I walked in to buy one at lunchtime. That isn't down to a supply issue from HTC.
