In April this year, Apple’s new iPad launched in nine more countries except for China. But we’ve already heard reports that the third-generation iPad has already been certified for 3G use by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. Now it looks like the Cupertino-based tech giant has just launched the new iPad in China today. Thanks to Apple’s new reservation system, the launch was more surprisingly organized and low-key. According to the Wall Street Journal, people quietly lined up outside Apple’s Apple Store in Shanghai and Beijing today.
Apple’s new reservation system apparently required customers to grab reservations starting Thursday before assigning them a specific time to wait in line for the device. Obviously Apple has learned its lesson following the chaotic iPhone 4S launch in the country early in January this year. One customer who waited in line for his new iPad was Wang Qin. Qin believes that the new system really made the process smooth and better. “But from what I read, I didn’t expect it to be as crowded. iPad launches haven’t been as bad as iPhone launches,” he commented.
