The ipad mini will sell real well in China. It's a cheaper alternative to the ipad, and to them, android tablet is not an option.

NOt even close. Nice try, trying downplay the hype surrounding the new apple devices release. Despite heavy heavy competition, Apple still has a ton of consumers, and a lot of chinese people are waiting for the ip5

Apple as a company itself head to head against the likes of Samsung, HTC, Nokia is doing fine. Doing very well. If you compare o.s usage of course Android looks better

Fantasy would be a sick name. Like I've got he new fantasy phone, oh yeah what is it? It ain't a miezu!

iphone is nowadays old phone, made by a chinese foxxcon factory. I recommend buying Xioami or Meizu phones which uses much better specifications and less than half price of iphone. Really, Apple is dead now, due to ANDROID.

I'm sorry if i sound vague but i read somewhere that
the IP will lose ground tdue to the price

The Meizu MX2 can be bought as all phone for less than an iPhone and Apple refuses to compromise on price!

So the devices will be exported to the US, before being sold where they're made- China!

Everyone gives a !@#$. Chinese consumers represents 20% of their income. That being said, coming out so late, the numbers will not truly reflect, cause their new stuff was only released for like 3 weeks in China for 2012. EVERYONE as in it's competitors will be monitoring it's sales. Personally, I think Apple's q4's numbers are going to be huge.
