Chinese Government Approves New iPad for Sale







China's Quality Certification Center has approved iPad model number A1416 -- that of the new iPad -- for sale in that country.

China is an incredibly important market for Apple, with the company posting huge growth in the region in recent years. The approval, which was actually issued last week, comes as Apple CEO Tim Cook appeared in China for meetings with Apple partners.

How ironic that China, of all places, has a "Quality Certification Center" to approve products...

You think it's really quality they look for? I'd imagine it's more along the lines of a "Doesn't connect to the unfiltered internet certification center".

Seems like the ProView issues have brushed over given the lack of news about them.

And people cried so hard about Apple getting screwed over when it was "news". Take it however you will but the Chinese government is not known to be the champion of the "little guy".

Approvals in all countries are arbitrary. Regulation in our own country operate on the legal principal of presumption of correctness by the regulator NOT preponderance of the evidence. We claim to be constitutional and either democratic or republican. We lie too.

AAPL has to deal with regulatory irregularities in many jurisdictions. USA being far worse than any of the other 149.

If we didn't suck more we would have 300 states, not 50.

I wonder if that's why they are calling the third-generation iPad, the "new iPad" -- to circumvent the ProView lawsuit...

Apple is a big part of the growing industry in China. I never thought China would disaprove the sale.
