Several Apple products are facing significant demand in China, with the 11-inch MacBook Air, certain versions of the iPad, and the iPhone 4 all facing shortages, Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White told clients in a note today, as reported by “AppleInsider” (http://www.appleinsider.com).
In a tour of the Far East, he noted the iPad and 11-inch MacBook Air are hard to find. But White found the iPhone 4 to be Apple’s most difficult product to purchase.
He said wait times are around two months and carrier China Unicom is unable to fulfill about a third of preorders. Apple’s interest in the market is seen as positive because of the growth opportunities in China, notes “AppleInsider.”
