Picture 16Apple (s aapl) seems to be trying everything they can think of to clear existing iPhone stock. As of today, you can finally order the iPhone 3G directly from Apple’s web site and have it delivered to your door.

If you’re fond of the old ways, you can still reserve your device at the Apple retail store and then go pick it up. Personally, since shipping’s free, I’d just as soon let laziness prevail. While the same option has been available from AT&T (s t) for a while now, it’s always nice to have a choice, especially one that makes use of Apple’s much-touted customer service.

  1. Thank goodness because I went to the Apple store today and there was a line the hallway. I waited 30 minutes, and the man in front of me had waited 40 minutes, and the line had not moved. I finally left, disgusted, because I’d called the store and was told that there was no wait. Of course, the person answering the phone could not see the line. I went back to my office, logged on, and ordered my iPhone, paying an extra $16 to have it shipped next day. Well worth the wait. I checked a few minutes ago and my phone was already shipped.
