Default Apple ends China iPhone store sales after scuffles

BBC News - Apple ends China iPhone store sales after scuffles

"Apple has said it will halt the sale of all iPhone models from its stores in China, after large crowds disrupted the launch of the iPhone 4S.

An Apple store in the Sanlitun area of Beijing failed to open after a large crowd gathered outside in anticipation of the launch.

The crowd became unruly, throwing eggs. Scuffles broke out with police."


Greedy brand whoring fools.

EDIT"

Apple store this evening, Xichang District, Beijing.

No iPhone 4S but plenty of police.
