iPhone 6: Saudi man 'asking for latest Apple smartphone as dowry for sister'

With iPhone prices getting a bump at each and every launch it seems there's no limit to how much people will pay for the latest Apple smartphone, though '1 x sister' could be it.

A Saudi man has asked a man who proposed to his sister to present him with an iPhone 6 as dowry, Kuwaiti daily Al Anba

The gift is to be offered as soon as the new smartphone is available locally and the marriage cannot take place until then, meaning there could be a bit of a wait for the couple given that iPhone 6 currently only has a release date in USA, France, Hong Kong, Canada, Germany, Singapore, the UK, Australia and Japan (19 September).

Dowries are traditional in the Arab world and are intended to be simple gifts, though some families insist on demanding exorbitant sums of money or expensive presents.

"We have heard of quite a few things, but an iPhone 6 that has not even hit the markets here is a bit bizarre," Saud Ahmad, a Bahraini office clerk, allegedly told Gulf News. "We need to promote a culture where marriage should not be used by anyone to get gifts or make profits in any way. If I had been the groom, I would have confronted the brother." Source...
