The Times Online ran a story claiming that European carriers O2 and T-Mobile have overestimated iPhone demand and are sitting on unsold inventory they are not putting on sale at steep discounts.

We already reported that German T-Mobile dramatically slashed their iPhone prices (up to 300 Euro). O2 cut the 8GB iPhone price by 100 Pounds.
Times Online also claims to have learned that Apple has placed an order with its Asian suppliers to produce 200,000 of the new 3G iPhones by the end of May. The number is supposed to be raised to 2 million in June.
Additionally the report says that the 3G iPhone would be radically different from the current iPhone. I would be very, very surprised if it will.

It is still anticipated that Steve Jobs will be presenting the 3G iPhone in June at the WWDC 08.
