Verkoop iPhone in China opgeschort

Apple heeft de verkoop van de nieuwe iPhone 4S opgeschort nadat er bij een winkel in Peking relletjes waren onstaan. Woedende klanten bekogelden de winkel met eieren omdat de verkoop niet op het aangekondigde tijdstip begon. Er waren opstootjes tussen klanten en het beveilingspersoneel en politie. De klanten hadden de hele nacht in de vrieskou buiten gewacht.
