Curious practices regarding sales recorded for pre-order in China. On one of the streets of Shenzhen a few days ago opened about 30 fake Apple Store, with fake sales points are almost indistinguishable from real shops. Dealer offers pre-order, promising to deliver on the shelves iPhone 6s before the end of this week. By the way, dealers offer new iPhone at the price twice exceeding their official retail price, and the amazing thing is that the Chinese are willing to part with a lot of money only to become the first holders of the flagship in the country.
In Russia the “Apple” novelty will appear “gray” retailers already tonight. In our country they habitually carried in hand Luggage from European countries. And if in the US the cost of the new iPhone is $649, $749 and $849 USD excluding taxes, then the Russian “gray” dealers price increases to the widow.
