More than 50,000 Chinese customers pre-ordered the iPhone 4 and huge lines formed in Beijing for the official launch on Friday, September 24th.
The launch of the iPhone 4 in China appears to have attracted more customers than Apple’s release of its previous iPhone in the country. More than 1,000 people lined up outside the Apple retail stores in Beijing & Shanghai, including the new store at Xidan Joy City shopping mall. Some customers waited as long as two days to be first in line to get their hands on one of the phones, but each customer could only purchase two units of iPhone 4.
However, since the purchasing of the iPhone 4 does not require customers to sign a two-year contract, everybody is taking their chance to grab one from the Apple stores. Check out some of the photos below.
