iPad Hits China…. Four Get Injured

This really can’t be the sort of press that Apple wants. The latest version of the iPad has hit China and a near riot apparently resulted in four people getting hurt:

Angry consumers began rushing the store on Saturday afternoon after a “foreign” Apple employee allegedly stepped into the crowd to push and beat people suspected of queue jumping, the Beijing News said.

After the employee retreated back into the store, a crowd of consumers smashed the glass front door and shoved security guards as they surged forward in anger over the alleged beatings, the report said.

So the desire for iPads led to an iBrawl. Steve can’t be happy about this. I’m sure the Chinese authorities aren’t either.
