Apple: We’ll Have You Know We Sold 2 Million iPhone 5s in Launch Event in China

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) has revealed this morning – perhaps prodded by various news reports of the iPhone 5 launch in China being a damp squib, devoid of any enticing queues – that two million iPhone 5 devices were sold in China in the three days since the launch.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said:

Customer response to iPhone 5 in China has been incredible, setting a new record with the best first weekend sales ever in China. China is a very important market for us and customers there cannot wait to get their hands on Apple products.
