Exactly one week before the Apple iPhone 5 hits the ground in China, the fourth-generation of the Apple iPad and the Apple iPad mini will be launched in the country. Both will be the Wi-Fi only models and it is not known when-or even if-the Wi-Fi+cellular models will be coming to China. All three devices will be available from Apple Stores, authorized resellers and can be bought online from Apple's web site. The day before launch, buyers can make reservations for a next-day pick up from 9am to 5pm. Apple instituted this system in a few countries where scalping of its devices has become a problem.
Adding China, the Apple iPhone 5 is now available in 47 countries with 42 selling the latest two Apple iPads.
