New iPhones available in Greece on October 25

Apple Inc.’s latest iPhones, the 5s and 5c, will be available in Greece, and more than 25 additional countries, on October 25, California-based Apple said in a statement.

Apple sold a record 9 million iPhones in the weekend debut of the two new models in September, when the product was offered in the US, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore and the UK.

It was the first time a new iPhone debuted in China, the world’s largest mobile-phone market, at the same time as the US.

The initial sales exceeded analysts’ projections, sending the shares up 5 percent on September 23. The iPhone is Apple’s most important product, accounting for half of revenue. [Bloomberg]
