Today is presumably a big day in China. That’s because the iPad mini and the iPad 4 are officially launching in the country today. You can recall that Apple broke the news last week saying that its iPhone 5 will be making its way into China on the 14th of this month. Apple also confirmed that the iPad mini and the iPad 4 will debut today in what is considered to be the most populous country in the world. So, how is the launch doing so far?
The IDG News Service says that the “early turnout for the device was nearly nonexistent, with not even a line forming outside the building.” The Apple Store located at the Wangfujing district in Beijing started selling the tablets at nine in the morning. IDG adds that only four customers entered the store after an hour since it opened. But in spite of the underwhelming debut, Li Yanyan, an analyst at the research firm Analysys International, believes that Apple’s newest tablets will sell in China. “Among higher-end tablets, there are few choices, and so many people will pick the iPad,” Li said.
