“In Hong Kong, it’s all about the Gold iPhone 5S,” Juro Osawa and Lorraine Luk report for The Wall Street Journal.
“Apple Inc. has asked its suppliers to increase production of the gold-colored iPhone 5S by an additional one-third after seeing strong demand, people familiar with the situation said,” Osawa and Luk report. “It isn’t clear whether there are currently supply constraints manufacturing the new iPhone.”
Osawa and Luk report, “At the Apple retail store in the city’s Causeway Bay shopping district, a long line went around the building, with many security guards making sure that there was room for pedestrians. While the store didn’t disclose any estimates of how many people may have showed up, the line seemed much longer compared to last year’s iPhone 5 launch in Hong Kong, which fell on a regular business day. This time, iPhones began selling on a public holiday.”
