Apple's iPhone 5c & 5s (Gold) : Launched, Big Demand all over, Out of stock in many places

Gold Apple iPhone 5S

iPhone 5s hours after the model's release on Friday, sparking off a frenzy that may well translate into rich pickings in the two markets Apple wants a bite of - China and India. After all, it is no secret that the two of the world's hottest economies are gold crazy.

Long lines formed outside stores in Sydney, Tokyo, New York, San Francisco and other cities as Apple broke with tradition and launched two iPhone models - the new top-of-the-line 5S and the less-expensive 5C - on the same day.

"While it is likely some of this line is due to not having an early pre-order option for the 5S, we still believe it shows loyalty to the iPhone remains strong among Apple's installed base," said ISI Group analyst Brian Marshall. He estimates Apple will sell about 6 million units in the first three days.

Apple sold more 5 million of the previous iPhone 5 units during its opening weekend last year.

The gold-colored version of the 5S, which also comes in silver and gray, was already sold out as of Friday and will now ship only in October, according to Apple's website. The gray and silver versions can still ship in 7 to 10 days.
