Apple starts selling the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus in 22 new markets
Apple’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were officially launched on September 19, but only 10 markets received the handsets on that day. Well, now it’s time for the second wave of iPhone 6 launches. Customers in 22 new markets around the world can buy the new iPhones starting Friday, September 26 - a day that has already begun in some countries.

New Zealand was the first among the new markets to get the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The handsets are more expensive there than in the US: prices for an unlocked iPhone 6 start at 999 NZD (about $792), and at 1,149 NZD ($911) for the iPhone 6 Plus. Speaking of which, the iPhone 6 Plus may be prone to accidental bending, but Apple states that the problem is extremely rare.

Anyway, here are the rest of the 21 markets where the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will launch (or have already launched) on September 26, in alphabetical order: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Isle of Man, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, and United Arab Emirates.

According to Apple, the two new iPhones will be available in a total of 115 countries before the end of the year. If you’re planning to buy one, make sure to read our iPhone 6 review and iPhone 6 Plus review first.

I hope you would want to replace those commas with dots.... Because $140000 for an iphone is insane xD

1400,00 in some countries commas are used instead of point e.g 1400,00 for Greece = 1400.00 for US or GB :)

Again I ask, why does it bother everyone what people spend their money on? If they want a phone that will bend who cares. I myself bought the 6plus 64gig for $105 on Verizon Edge. Currently I have only the iPhone and I love it but I'm missing an android can't wait for the Note 4. I don't miss the S5 or the G3. Hurry up Verizon with the Note 4.

I tried bending the iPhone 6+ it takes a lot of force (maybe not as much force as some other phones) but it is something you have to take a good effort to do... The same goes for many electronics... I dont care much for iPhone 6 or 6+, really happy with 5S right now, not sure if bigger screen is something I want to move on to yet, but many around me already have them, and no none have bent yet, or having issues with it...

I've played with my friends iP6 - it's a good phone, but I'm actually one of the people who prefer 4" screen. I do a lot of driving, holding an iPhone in hand (I use Siri for most tasks though) - so here's wishing for a 4" or 4.3" with iP6s... Just me... bro... If anything I'll move on to iP6 not the + But I'm primarily with iPhones for iOS - it is really much more advanced than Android on so many levels...

I think everyone should stop with this crap bend jokes, on non related articles. I'm starting to like iOS 8, iPhone's hardware never impressed me tbh, but I'm liking what they have did with iPhone 6, they are improving and catching up.

Supply and demand! They probably hired ppl to buy it from the states and sell it there for a bigger profit.
