  • India Remains a Priority on Apple's Retail Radar

    With so much chatter during the past year about Apple's retail focus inside of China, it's easy to overlook the other vitally important global markets where product sales are of keen interest to the iDevice maker.

    Consequently, it comes as no surprise that India is still firmly positioned on Apple's priority radar. As published reports out of the nation note today, Apple has a grand vision for its future in India. And it involves more stores and bigger sales.

    "Apple is planning more than a twofold expansion of its retail reach in India to double iPhone sales in each of the next three years to achieve fresh targets set by the company's US parent amid stiff competition in the premium smartphone segment from a reinvigorated Samsung," The Times of India reports.

    Apple has a new distribution deal with locally-operated Optiemus Group, the same distributor used for Samsung and HTC mobile devices. With "more such deals are in the pipeline," sources say Apple will also soon have more iPhone distributors joining the party -- a party that already includes Redington, Ingram Micro, Rashi Peripherals and Brightstar.
