“Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products.”
The Friday launch also included 32 other new countries, but Apple’s announcement specifically covers only the opening weekend sales in China.
“The best first weekend sales ever in China.” Hmm… Hopefully these numbers will lead to the Apple “bears” reconsidering their stance on the future of the company.
This doesn’t appear to be happening as of yet, however, as Apple (AAPL) stock is at 508.039 (-1.755) at the time of this article.
