Is apple counting the cloned phones as sales in China?
Customers in China lined up to buy phone adv. as Apple and they were clones. The company has a website at wwwdotendotmeizudotcom . They must not be able to stop them. Maybe apple decided to include the fake Apple stores and this new clone phone as sales in China. They are still up and running and no press about it. Did Apple ever make an announcement that they were clones to the people that bought them or just keep quiet and add them to sales figures. I am long qqq holds app, Nok & msft.
Apple is making phones in China. How can you trust that the cloned parts are not used in the Apple phones sold in US to save the suppliers money? It is highly unlikely that anyone could watch every supplier and build. I would say the phones are corrupt with counterfeit parts or no one can tell what the he.. is going on. I am talking about the US phones not the China phones.
As you Google it on the right side is advertisement by Overseas electronics which shows top 10 sellers: No 1 Nokia Lumia 920, No. Samsung Galaxy Note II, No. 3. Nokia Lumia 820, No. 10, Apple iphone 5. Something to dwell on.LOL
That's what happened when you're dealing a communist country. The store set up, products, personnel, uniforms, everything is EXACTLY like a real Apple Store. Their products are identical to real Apple products. Even as you shut one down, two more open up around the corners. They have a few of them in Viet Nam and Indian too..... That's what happened when you price your AAPL products too high.
