re: iPhone 5 Sales Surpass 2 Million In China
If iPhone is doing so well, why do Apple's share prices go through the roof. They are at $524 (a sizeable drop from $705), but analysts are betting they'll drop to $425.

2M in China is a drop in the Pacific as fare as sales go.

re: iPhone 5 Sales Surpass 2 Million In China
Interesting story. I just received a news release that talks about how "almost two-thirds of the handsets sold in China this year are powered by the Android OS: China is its largest single market, a third of the Android devices sold in 2012 were sold in China." The release goes on to say that the iPhone only makes up 5% of China's total handset sales (which gives you some idea of how big the Chinese market is). The release was from Informa and the full text of it can be found here:
