If you think about it, they sold more cars in China this January, than in the US. China is already the second largest car market and computer market in the world. They can afford just a phone. You probably forgot, they already have hundreds of thousands of unlocked iPhones in use, which they paid for more than the sale price in the US. With 600 million mobile phone users, even a small percentage is a lot.
Apple needs to introduce more models to compete with Nokia or RIMM. Just look at how many different models they are offering for customers to choose from. The Iphone has this touch screen and they are not going to put more buttons on it, and that is the problem. Some people just like the buttons. How will Apple redesign the Iphone? It is a simple design, but they cannot make it simpler and they will not make it more complicated?
The main reason why the Greater China region of China/Taiwan/Hong Kong are so industrialized is that they have modern infrastructure. The other places like India or Thailand are politically unstable, and there is a lack of proper infrastructure like stable electricity supply, highways and railways. This probably explains why China's per capita GDP is 2.5 times that of India. Presently, China's economic developement is like Japan's in the 1970's. So give it some time, as...
The people in China have a lot of freedoms and they are getting better and better all the time. Sure there are problems, but they improving in all areas, to your disappointment. You don't have a clue of what you are saying. Hong Kong is one of the best governed cities in the world, way better than India which is still corrupted and poor despite being democratic. Just give China another 20 years of economic development, they will be even more dominant in all areas with...
You are just another foreigner eating sour grapes.
Don't be so jealous little kid. China is just starting to develop, but they already have so many local millionaires now. Hong Kong alone has more millionaires than Frankfurt. Please do not get jealous when Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Taipei and Tianjin get the Apple Store before you get it. Paris, Frankfurt and most of western Europe have reached the peak already, but China is still booming, for decades to come.
Ipods sales is only about 25% of Apple sales. The Mac, laptops, Itunes, MacOS and Iphone make up 75% of the sales. Please do some homework next time.
I think you have to check your knowledge of China. First, you said people who bought a house or a car, cannot afford the iPhone. This is the most ridiculous comment you will see anywhere. Second, the Chinese stock market in Shanghai is not available to most foreign investors. Only those Chinese stocks listed in Hong Kong are available to foreigners. In fact, the Chinese government has been raising bank interest rates to reduce excess amount of liquidity and cool down the...
Hong Kong would be another very good market for the iPhone. Many people there have more than one cellphone. They like to buy a new phone every few months.
To those who think people in China cannot afford the iPhone, they are totally out of touch with the world. China is already the world's second largest market for computers/laptops, and cars. If they can afford a car, then they can afford the iPhone. They certainly have enough money in China to drive the Chinese stock market to high levels. If they have the money to invest in stocks, they can certainly afford a few hundreds bucks for an iPhone.
