The iPhone 7 is in Hong Kong -- if you can pre-order one...
Crazy but true -- the new iPhone 7 Plus models were all sold out in Hong Kong in less than 10 minutes on Friday, after pre-ordering was available around 3.08pm.
The first to go were the jet black ones -- the new coveted colour -- by 3.13pm, followed by the other iPhone 7 Plus models. Then the regular jet black iPhone 7 models were all gone by 3.21pm.
Those who put down orders will get the new smartphones in three to four weeks, and those who were not early birds will have to wait until November.
Techies not too impressed with the smartphone
Who bought all these phones that are water resistant and need wireless headphones? Probably speculators.
Initial reviews by tech experts weren't keen on the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, so we'll have to see if speculators were on the money to snap up all the latest iPhone models in the hopes of making several bucks off of it.
Apple must be relieved -- and hopes that kind of response to the sale will be repeated in other markets...
