Cu doar cateva zeci de minute in urma compania Apple a publicat un comunicat de presa in legatura cu deschiderea sesiunii de precomenzi pentru Apple Watch de maine, confirmand faptul ca produsul nu va fi putea cumparat direct din magazine fara rezervare, dar si stocurile extrem de reduse. In aceasta idee, compania Apple le recomanda utilizatorilor sa faca precomenzi online pentru Apple Watch in vederea cumpararii sau rezervari online pentru proba in magazine, asta deoarece ei nu vor putea cumpara ceasul daca vor vizita un Apple Watch in 24 aprilie.
Apple pune foarte mare accent pe faptul ca, cantitatile initiale ale Apple Watch vor fi extrem de limitate, iar ieri am aflat ca majoritatea modelelor vor fi disponibile pentru precomanda de maine, dar vor fi livrate abia in luna mai pentru utilizatori. Separat de toate acestea, aseara Tim Cook a publicat imaginea de mai sus in care tine o sedinta pentru lansarea Apple Watch din SUA, insa se pare ca el va participa la evenimentele din Paris, mai exact la cele organizate in Galeriile Lafayette, unde Apple are un stand special pentru vanzarea Apple Watch din aur.
Daca sunteti interesati sa cumparati Apple Watch maine, ei bine in Europa veti putea face precomanda incepand cu ora 10:00 a diminetii.
