UK mobile operator O2 has exhausted its supply of Apple’s latest hot gadget.

A posting on the O2 UK website tells consumers that due to phenomenal demand for the iPhone 3GS, the company has run out of stock online, over the phone and in retail stores.

The company said it expects additional stock of the iPhone 3GS at the end of this week.

Apple launched the latest addition to its iPhone portfolio on June 19. The “S”, Apple said, stands for “speed,” with the device boasting enhanced memory and processor power to give a faster performance in applications and on the web.

The Californian vendor sold over one million 3GS units in the first three days of launch and that said six million users had downloaded the latest version of the iPhone software 3.0 between its release on June 17 and June 22.

In terms of hardware enhancements, the 3GS features longer battery life, a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, which happily allows video recording, hands free voice control and a digital compass that complements the onboard GPS to reorient maps to the direction you are facing.

Version 3.0 adds over 100 new features to the older devices including: Cut, Copy and Paste; MMS; improved search; landscape keyboard; parental controls; Voice Memos; a Find My iPhone feature that works together with MobileMe; Remote Wipe; wireless downloading of movies, TV and audio programs; and peer to peer functionality.
