China Sees Big iPad Launch Turnout

Apple’s iPad is off to a big start in China. The company launched its multimedia tablet device in the country Friday morning to long lines filled with excited customers.

The weather didn’t cooperate with customers waiting outside Apple’s Beijing store in the rain, according to Business Insider. Shoppers waiting in line in Shanghai, however, stayed dry.
