America Movil Expecting iPhone Shortage in Brazil

America Movil will start selling the iPhone 3G in Brazil on Friday but does not expect to have enough, according to a Reuters report.

Claro, America Movil in Brazil, received an initial 30,000 iPhones from Apple. It had hoped to receive many more since greater than 100,000 subscribers had already signed up for the phone by late July.

"Demand is very strong. It's remarkable," Claro Chief Executive Joao Cox said on a conference call. "We're expecting a shortage of devices initially."

Claro plans to sell the iPhone for between 1,000 reais ($549) and 2,600 reais ($1,428), depending on the model and monthly calling plan.

Do not forget to say that the biggest data plan sold is 200 MB (very low for 3g)

Operator Vivo (Telefonica) is also selling for a cheaper price than Claro. Claro called me yesterday and wanted me to pay R$ 2000 = US$ 1.100 , they are crazy to charge so much... I believe Claro will have a lot of phones left in inventory...
