Photo: Tatyana of Makeev/Reuters A year ago the start of sales of iPhone X looked as the present thriller. People till several days spent the night near shop, were heated in the next cafes, have even organized the tent town in a miniature. Had a good time whereas could: played chess, cards, got acquainted with each other, even found the love, having approached for so long standing behind the treasured smartphone. There were also numerous conflicts, fights, even fights between sufferers to receive the first a device from Apple. At the exit: speculative sales are two-three times more expensive than nominal price. The surroundings on the eve of the beginning of sales of iPhone XS were similar to the last year's scenario: sleepless nights in the Tverskaya, organized turn in which places tried to sell for 450 thousand rubles. On start at doors only the press generally crowded. Among army of citizens with cameras and microphones there was a young man Andrey who has bought a new gadget in Cologne and was going to sell it at extremely low price: — For how many do you want to sell it? — For 100 thousand rubles. — And bought for how many? — I bought for plus or minus 95 thousand rubles, very cheap. More expensively now don't take, there was no such agiotage. Will already open, it will cost 89 thousand rubles. A little more successful dealers selling the smartphone for 30 thousand rubles stand nearby is dearer номинала: — And from where it at you has appeared? — Secret of firm. I have defended, all as is necessary. — Tell, please, have sold already at least one copy? — Three pieces, we will look till ten o'clock. Pieces twenty are. — And if you don't sell, then...? — That I will salt them for the winter. When at last the doors of shop were opened, very drunk man became the first potential buyer. He joyfully posed before a photo and video cameras, and at a rack of sales has already begun to distribute an interview. He has bought the place in turn for 50 thousand rubles. Only on acquisition of the device of money he didn't have. The person who took the ninth place became the first owner of iPhone. The second was the girl Yulia who has got in a queue less than in two hours prior to opening магазина: — What at you was number? — the 243rd. — Have you entered one of the first? — Yes, because very many have left. The guy has staid, in my opinion, four days, he has left though he had places about the first on the fourth. Bought generally in one copy. It was this time more interesting to dealers to sell the place in turns, than the smartphone. It has turned out not at all, the majority has parted on houses, so and without having earned anything. On an exit even after opening of doors there were people with plates "Will sell the place in turn", though there is no turn any any more. Standing with a piece of cardboard "I will sell the place for ten thousand rubles" Timur very much of races
