Apple Asia Chronicles

 BY THE APPLE GIRL

Owning an Apple product is a symbol of upward mobility among Asia’s fast growing middle class. In my recent trip to Asia, I noticed a common thing between the west and the east. Crowded Apple Stores. The impact of Apple and its products on the psyche of people all over the world is amazing.

I couldn’t get my hands on a fake iPhone 5 or see a fake Apple store, but got some pictures of Apple references and stores and snagged Apple accessories at record breaking discount prices. My advice for anyone going to China – Shop 🙂

 US Apple stores have started selling iPhone 4S since 8 AM this morning. As expected people have been in line at many stores  around the country since yesterday. MacRumors reported over a 100 people in line at Apple’s Shibuya store 11 hours before launch time and a 100 people in line at the Paris store. Additionally, Verizon, Sprint, AT&T store will also carry iPhone 4S today. Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Radio Shack and Sam’s Club are also expected to carry some.  NBC11 reports that Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple, showed up at his local Apple store on Thursday and said he would wait there overnight, although he had two phones coming to his house.
