Singapoor is small fish in big sea.

anyhow what do they buy for kids?

the point is
New iPad continues the tradition of Apple of having sold out products at every product launch and remains very popular, with or without Steve Jobs.
I've made my living, Mr. Thompson, in large part as a gambler. Some days I make twenty bets, some days I make none. There are weeks, sometimes months, in fact, when I don't make any bet at all because ...

good point i don't dispute ipad as a product , it is good product.

what I’m saying in long run people will go for cheaper product with same specifications.

because glory can last only so long before it become just another novelty.

There is nothing new on new  ipad , it is same product with faster processor.

as far as hardware goes,
retina display is the limit
adding more pixels is no use.

that is why Apple stopped the numerical system and called it simply the New iPad instead of iPad 3.

If China Unicom (CHU) is the AT&T of China, having enjoyed an 18-month monopoly as Apple's (AAPL) only official iPhone carrier in the world's largest mobile phone market, then China Telecom (CHA) just became its Verizon.
The carrier began taking orders for the iPhone 4S a week ago, and by the time doors opened Friday at China Telecom's 2,850 retail outlets, pre-sales had reportedly passed 200,000.
It may be the country's No. 3 mobile operator (total subscribers: 216 million), but China Telecom has the largest Wi-Fi network (30,000 hot spots) and 38.7 million 3G subscribers -- nearly as many as China Unicom's 43 million.
China Mobile (CHL), the country's largest carrier (600 million subscribers) has been talking to Apple for years and is expected to start selling the iPhone when an LTE version arrives, probably later this year. Meanwhile, so eager are its customers to get their hands on Apple's pocket computer that more than 15 million are using gray market iPhones on China Mobile's sluggish 2G network.

China has caught Apple fever, as the massive crowds that gathered for January's iPhone 4S launch made clear. Morgan Stanley's Katy Huberty estimates that when the device is available from all three mobile carriers, sales in the country will quickly reach 40 million a year. See here.
To put that number in context, Apple's worldwide iPhone sales in fiscal 2011 were 72.3 million.


=================================================






no stopping Apple fever in China.

and Apple App Stores don't even accept China credits cards   -  yet.

Steve Jobs had stolen ideas from others just before his death.  
What APPLE has done have nothing  ...

Apple is a good example to show why America will remain number one well into the 21 century and China will remain the land of cheap labor.
