Both models will also be available on Friday from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, additional carriers and select Apple Authorized Resellers.

“iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are better in every way, and we are thrilled customers love them as much as we do,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “Pre-orders for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus set a new record for Apple, and we can’t wait to get our best iPhones yet into the hands of customers starting this Friday.”

As We're privvy to the iphone Party Season.... The scenes on September 19 will be ever so hillarious to watch as people camp out of AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, Walmart, Radio Shack, etc. (Unless one goes to a Walmart 24-hrs).    In the meantime, though, the World is not idle..as this from Google reflects:

I realize that Apple's "niche" is different--but the long-term question remains:  How long can paying 400+ Dollars for a phone be justified....Although I was ever so fascinated by TIm Cook, Downloaded the U2 Album, intrigued by Apple Watch & Apple Pay...the viablity and sustainblity of such a model is yet to be addressed.   I plan on not joining the hype :-)
