Enough already with these rumors about analyst Gene Munster!!!!   ...oh, wait...
Well, as long as they're INTERNAL! ;-)
How about a link to some article, any article, that states that the trial _in China_ has concluded.  Everything I've found, so far, says it is still ongoing as of 5/10/12...but then, my search skills aren't legendary...
  I sort of agree...this isn't an issue of clear-cut merits.   The question is, whether Apple's "friends" (read, "partners"), in Chinese business have more, or less, influence with the Chinese government than Proview's "friends" (read, "debt-holders").   I 'sort of agree' because I, too, think it would be more in China's long-term interests to support Apple...but, even in China, there must be some version of "the old school tie".
  My thought was that, at this point, all we have is Proview's account of Apple's intentions.  They seem eager to promote this idea, and have publicized it more than once.   Much has been made of the way business is done in China - "saving face" is a feature of this technique, though certainly not native only to China.
Can you say, "saving face"?
ummm...   "My dog ate it"???
Another good indication that "shipped" and "sold" are different things...and that the iPad and the pretenders are, and do, very different things...
In AFTER the peacocks strut...   But the real point here is probably a profit issue, not gross sales. Amazon sells their Kindle products pretty close to the bone, relying much more on content sales for profit. Target gets none of that gravy.
