Apple Eyes Retail Entry in India
It's one of the largest mobile communities in the world. And Apple has it within its retail crosshairs.
According to published reports Friday, Apple is looking to launch a physical retail presence in India at some point soon, most likely before the end of 2012. A source from India's Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion reveals that talks with the iPhone maker have been going on for some time now. But it appears that the green light has finally been given.
Apple Inc. has made this move following the Indian government’s decision to allow full ownership of single-brand retail stores by foreign companies.
Characteristically, however, Apple isn't commenting on the rumor. But the rumor may be reality before long, given how "certain" the sources are of Apple's looming retail exploits in India.
