iPad 2 sells out in China in under four hours, attracts huge crowds

The launch of the iPad 2 in China on Friday morning once again garnered massive interest outside its Apple Stores. The queues were huge outside the flagship Apple Beijing store although many of the waiting customers were thought to be scalpers. The Queues starting forming on Thursday evening at around 5pm.

Scalpers are becoming a major frustration to many people as they buy up as much stock as possible to sell on at a profit. Some stock goes to other countries while the rest gets sold outside the store it was purchased from. Customers buy if off the street to avoid having to wait in the lines. The Beijing Apple Store even had a sign outside forbidding scalpers to sell in the district.
