Apple iPad launches in China today without incident

We reported a few weeks back that Apple was going to launch both the new iPad and iPad 2 in China this month. Today marks the official launch day for the best-selling tablet on the market, but one thing seems to be largely missing on launch day. Apple launches in China generally result in long lines, scalpers, and fits of mass chaos, though today’s iPad launch is largely muted, thanks in large part to Apple’s reservation system they introduced back on 7/10. Starting yesterday, customers in China were able to reserve their iPad on Apple’s website, allowing them to go into an Apple store the next day to pick up their shiny new tablet.

Sales associates at China’s Apple stores have indicated that sales of the iPad will continue to be reservation-only indefinitely, so Chinese customers looking to get their hands on the iPad will need to hop on their computers between 9am and 12pm to express your interest in the product. Once you’ve secured a reservation, your tablet will be waiting at the store for you the next day.

Any Chinese readers go into the Apple store today for the iPad? Let us know what your experience was like by leaving a comment below.
