    Default China Getting the iPad in August



    Although yesterday's WWDC kick-off was all about the iPhone 4, Apple CEO Steve Jobs opened his keynote address with a few self-congratulating comments about the runaway success of the iPad. Plugging its two million sales thus far and hinting an at even more successful future, Apple is clearly proud of itself. And, slowly but surely, the company is helping the entire world discover what all the hoopla is about, as Apple continues to expand the geographic boundaries of the iPad's availability.

    Less than two short weeks ago, iPad fever reached a few more continents as Apple Stores in Europe and Asia began stocking the iPad. Overnight, flocks of prospective iPad buyers turned up in droves to get their hands on the revolutionary tablet. And while the international market is still largely awaiting the iPad's arrival in many places, the biggest mobile community in the world is now set to receive the iPad in August.

    Apple's Asia Pacific CEO Lu Lei has confirmed the August Chinese launch of the iPad, although a specific date is yet to be determined. Despite a slew of copycat iPads now plaguing the Chinese marketplace, the real thing will turn up in the world's most populous nation shortly after it similarly debuts in Hong Kong and Singapore this July. Of course, anyone who thinks that the iPad isn't already in China is fooling himself. iPads are being smuggled into the country at a rapid pace, and Chinese officials are not happy about it.

    Like the iPhone, China Unicom will offer coverage for the iPad, which will use WCDMA as its 3G standard. "Special content from state-run television" will reportedly be primed and ready for the iPad by the time of its formal late summer launch.

    I was in China 1st and 2nd week of May for the World Expo in Shanghai, I see iPad being sold there, probably smuggled in. For those that haven't been to China, go there before you preach anything negative. Every country has their form government and problems. The city of Shanghai is clean, I get full signal, full bars on my iPhone everywhere I go, in the subways, in the distance villages. With 20 million people in Shanghai, I didn't get dropped calls and my calls always get through unlike here in the States. The city is clean and beautiful. China is a huge market, apple is smart to hit China as soon as it can. As middle class in gets richer in China, they will demand more USA products and services, which will be good for us.

    People be nice and play nice. Don't blame China for having apple products and not other locations. Blame apple or file a comment card and state how you feel without any profanity.

    You must either have a very high standard of odor quality, or you're just randomly trying to find a point to critize about China. You must as well go into India and talk about their smell.

    China was led by Mao and others, and then, there was a revolution. China realized maoism wouldn't work, so now china is a single party socialist republic.
