Apple’s first smartwatch may sell out in Taiwan on Friday, the first day of sales in the
local market, because the supply is limited, a local retailer said.
The Apple Watch went on sale at 11am Friday at 10 select Apple-authorized resellers in Taipei, New Taipei, Taichung and Kaohsiung, but the total number of initially available units was estimated at only 1,000.
A sales representative of Data Express Infotech Company, one of Apple’s main distributors in Taiwan, said the first batch may sell out on the launch day due to the limited supply.
A consumer surnamed Wang, 30, who was the first buyer of an Apple Watch at a Data Express store, said she began to queue up at 10pm Thursday.
Wang said she thinks most Taiwanese consumers are still uncertain about whether they really need the Apple Watch, while others have purchased it from other markets. [FULL STORY]
