Who does the Daily Mail blame for iPhone shortages?

The Daily Mail has published an article claiming professional gangs of traders are buying up vast quantaties of the UK's iPhone 4 stock and shipping it abroad.

The tabloid claims this is "depriving ordinary customers of getting their hands on them."

Apparently, these hoards of 'runners' are paid around £70 for each un-contracted device they get their hands on, which they pay between £499 and £599 for.

Directly asserting that this supposed practice has caused the iPhone 4 shortage, the Mail goes on to explain the chaos as 'genuine' customers become frustrated they cannot buy one.
