CUPERTINO, California — October 26, 2010 — Apple launched the Apple Store in China. The link to the online store is (http://store.apple.com/cn/). Apple’s online store is the easiest and most convenient way to purchase Apple products, such as the iPhone 4, iPad, and iPod touch. The online store provides free shipping, free personalized engraving on any iPod or iPad, and the chance to configure any Mac the way you like it. The online Apple Store offers a huge variety of third-party software and accessories. The online Apple Store is the only place you can purchase the iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED.
The online Apple Store also provides special education pricing on Apple products for eligible students and faculty members. The online Apple Store launched just in time for the holiday season. Gift wrapping is also available with the purchase of most Apple products including the iPod, iPad, and iPhone.
Also starting today, Apple’s App Store in Simplified Chinese is now accessible by customers in China. The App Store hosts localized featured apps and charts of the most popular apps in China. The App Store is provided to iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone users. The App Store is the world’s largest catalog of apps. There are over 300,000 apps in 20 categories. The categories range from games to medical.
The opening of Apple’s online store is something I am very happy about. China has so many people that there is a large variety of future customers for Apple. Apple is taking advantage of one of the world’s biggest markets. China is a great place for selling Apple products and I am sure that the online store will be a success.
