I went into the little shop where I always go in the area of electronic Landao in Beijing. There, all shops offer the iPad. Mine is 32 GB, it is a genuine Apple, not an infringement as there is already a lot. This is the first version, the one that works with WiFi. I paid 6000 Yuan, about 650 euros more expensive than the U.S. market. But my problem is that Apple Store Top French and Chinese for iPad not exist yet, so I log on the American version in the meantime! ”
Even large retailers are demanding “authorized sellers” by Apple in Beijing, they display the logo of the brand and sell the iPad, while the Apple Store Chinese did not always sell.

Often small factories moved parallel right next to the factories that produce official for a major brand. And these small factories offer exactly the same products with the brand name, and distribute them on the Chinese market. The products are fully compliant but is also very illegal.
