The Apple iPad 2 is a device that is renowned around the globe, and the recent launch of the device in China was met by huge crowds during its debut. The first customers lined up for a chance to purchase the device at about 5 PM local time in China. There were hundreds of people in line in some areas. Those who needed to use the rest room or eat were given one hour breaks, but if they took longer than that they were asked to go back to the back of the line.
A number of scalpers could been seen outside of locations offering iPad 2’s at a slightly increased price. It looks as tough the white version of the device was much more popular than the black version, selling out much quicker in most locations.
Similar crowds were seen during the US launch, and you can bet that when the device launches in other countries the same type of hype will be seen there as well. It is obvious that the iPad 2 will have successful launches nearly anywhere that it is released, based on the hype that has surrounded the launch in other locations.
Apple has not yet released information about their iPad 2 sales, but did say that they sold more than 4.69 million units in the second quarter of this year. That number was down from the 7.33 million units that were shipped during the first quarter. Although a decline was expected, that particular decline was a bit steeper than most thought that it would be. The iPad 2 launch in China has rekindled the hype for the device, and should help the company with launches in the future. If China is any indication, the worldwide demand is higher than it ever has been for the iPad 2.
