Even to the surprise of Apple itself, their most expensive smartphone yet, the iPhone X, sold out in less than 10 minutes after it was made available for pre-order earlier this morning.

The price of the cheaper version of iPhone X is 999 (EUR 1126) with 64GB of storage, the most expensive version 1149 (EUR 1295) with 256GB of storage.

But it would seem that the crazy Apple fans don't care about the price. The phone sold out in less less than 10 minutes despite the Apple online shop's server problems. Those pre-order phones are due to arrive on November 3rd. Just one hour later loads more were pre-ordered, extending the waiting list to cover the entire first month.

For me, I'm happy with my 100 euro(ish) smartphone, and I don't understand what I would need the great-laptop-priced phone that's too big to comfortably keep it in my jeans pocket for.
