Apple Sells Over Two Million iPhone 5 Handsets In Opening Chinese Weekend
In a recent press release, Apple announced that it sold over two million iPhone 5 units in China's opening weekend of sales. The phone wasn't even launched there until 12/14, the latest in a flow of nations that'll top 100 by the end of the year. “Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products.”
It'll be interesting to see how China's opening weekend compares when looking at next year's iPhone, to see if demand is rising or sinking. There's a growing amount of competition, but this can only seem like positive news for Apple.
