When the iPad 2 was released in China last year, there were some incidents that kind of ruined the mood of the launch day, especially in a busy Beijing store. This year, however, there have been only 40 people lined in front of the same store, and there was no sign of disorder...

actually in china apple products are status symbol
So if the New iPad looks just the same as the iPad 2 , no one will be bothered to upgrade even the rich folks as all chinese are stingy and calculative .
How do i know ? Dude , i'm chinese

Confucius say: not true, in China everyone can go get a cheap (plastic) knock-off at the corner bodega. Or, on any restaurant menu.

That doesn't really counter IamYourFather6657's claim. Even if it is a knockoff, they will still feel like they have the high status since other people will think it's an iPad as well.

Online ordering has much to do with this. I'm quite sure the iPad will boast beautiful sales.

That is due to the economic slump.

Oh no.
The way they are treating Chinese customers is not good.
That will cause a huge loss to Apple.
Remember China is the Worlds most populated country.
So,bad service may inflect in fall of profit.
