iPad Mini and 4th Gen iPad to come to China on December 7

It's no secret that the Chinese market is incredibly important for companies dabbling in consumer electronics. As a rapidly improving Chinese economy comes to the forefront of world affairs, the general Chinese public has a far greater spending power and exposure to foreign products than ever before. If you consider the sheer numbers involved when you take China's population into account, there is a veritable gold mine that awaits the likes of Apple and its like. It's no wonder then that one of the first countries to get the iPad Mini and the 4th gen iPad (outside the established European and North American countries) happens to be China.

 

 

 

 

Along with the 2 iPads, the iPhone 5 will be coming to China as well, having passed the necessary certifications for it to be sold over there.

 

Currently the iPads are available in 42 countries, and the release in China will be part of its latest roll out. As is the case with most iPad roll outs, Apple will only be launching the 16 GB WiFi only version of the iOS tablet initially on December 7. The launch dates for the other variants of the iPads are as yet unknown.
