The Motorola Droid X smartphone appears to have enjoyed strong sales in its first few days on the market.
Primary carrier Verizon is pushing availability of web orders back to 3 August, while multiple reports indicate that many retail locations in the US have sold out of the handset.
The reports could indicate a promising debut for the Droid X. The follow-up to the hugely successful Droid was launched on 16 July in the US through Verizon.
The launch also comes amid publicity headaches for Apple, one of Motorola's primary competitors.
Apple hopes to have settled the antenna issues with its iPhone 4 by providing free 'bumper' cases to prevent interference from contact with human hands.
Apple shares were down slightly on Monday, but industry analysts have suggested that the saga will have little effect on the company in the long run, while some pundits are even chalking up the ordeal as a public relations win for Apple.
The reports also come amid a time of transition for Motorola. The company agreed on Monday to sell off its wireless infrastructure assets to Nokia Siemens Networks.
