Apple launches iPhone 4 in China

Apple on Saturday launched the latest version of its iPhone in China and boosted its presence in the world's biggest Internet and mobile market by opening another two stores in Beijing and Shanghai.
Dozens of people queued up at the new store in the capital for the first official iPhone 4, some waiting for more than 24 hours, even though the smartphone has been available on the grey market for months.
At the front of the queue was Yu Zhonghui, who began lining up at 5:00 am on Friday.
"I thought I was going to be bored standing in line but I'm having a great time," Yu said, according to the Global Times.
"It's like a party."
Han Ziwen, a bookstore owner who had queued for 60 hours to get his hands on the iPad, also lined up for an iPhone 4.
"The iPad and iPhone 4 will certainly have a great impact on the publishing industry," Han was quoted by the China Daily as saying.
"My bookstore will either be destroyed or have to find a new way forward. I have to witness the process."
