Friday was a special day for Apple fans, as the new-generation iPhones - iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus - were released in Hong Kong and eight other markets around the world. While the unveiling of the new devices is likely to spur a new round of shopping spree on smartphone accessories, business owners in Shenzhen remain wary of the potential commercial opportunities, given their past failure in assessing the market.
The fact that the Chinese mainland is absent from Apple Inc's list of selling regions for its latest products did not stop Chinese die-hard users from buying the new gadgets in the grey market at high prices, reported Beijing Evening News.
An iPhone 6 with storage of 16 gigabytes, which is priced at $199 at the official website of Apple Inc, sells for more than $1,600 in Zhongguancun, the technology hub of Beijing, after being brought inland from Hong Kong by scalpers, and an iPhone 6 Plus sells for around $2,000, much higher than its original price of $299.
