The new smartphone appeared on sale in the Far East first, and as midnight approached other time zones, the sales moved westbound. Prices with all the retailers are the same: from $835 for a “regular” version of iPhone 6 with 16GB memory to $1,227 for iPhone 6 with bigger screen and 128 GB memory.
In Moscow, queues by major retailers began growing two hours before midnight. Many cars were parked along Moscow’s main Tverskaya Street, though parking is not allowed there.
Another big retailer, MTS, says their pre-order for Apple's new gadget was by three times bigger than the one for iPhone 5 and 5C. Retailer Svyaznoy says about 70% of their order was for the model with the “regular” screen.
The retailer chose not to give any forecasts, but one of them told ITAR-TASS about 350-400 thousand gadgets may be sold in Russia to the yearend.
