Apple TV supply dries up at retail stores, refresh imminent… apparently

The Apple TV supply has run dry at Wal-Mart and Best Buy. Apple’s hobby device seems to be on the verge of a product refresh, or maybe not. Or maybe, just maybe. Who knows.

Apple Insider has contacted Best Buy’s sales division asking when the device will be back on sale, but according to a company representative, it doesn’t look like they will even be getting any Apple TVs back in stock:

At this point in time, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting [the Apple TV] back,” the representative said after performing an inventory check.

It’s not just box stores seeing stock vanish either, apparently Amazon has also seen its supply run dry. Of course, rumor-mongers are salivating at the idea of an imminent Apple Television release. We’ve got no info on that, or if a refresh is happening. The only thing we know is that the Apple TV is in short supply, and traditionally that means a refresh is coming at the very least.

If we hear more, we’ll let you know.
