The Situation would have fit in PERFECTLY in these crowds! Ha!
Today, Apple announced that they won't be selling the iPhone 4S in the Chinese cities of Beijing and Shanghai for the time being due to out-of-control crowds!
The new iPhone was supposed to debut in both cities today, but when a Beijing Apple store announced that the item would be unavailable on the first day of release, the crowds went nuts! People got into "scuffles" with each other, and one shopper hurled EGGS at a store! Wow!
Police were forced to put up yellow tape around the store's shopping plaza, and they pushed screaming shoppers away from the perimeter.
Here's what Apple had to say about their decision to NOT sell the iPhone 4S in Beijing and Shanghai for the moment:
"The demand for iPhone 4S has been incredible, and our stores in China have already sold out. Unfortunately we were unable to open our store at Sanlitun due to the large crowd, and to ensure the safety of our customers and employees, iPhone will not be available in our retail stores in Beijing and Shanghai for the time being."
What do U think? Is Apple making the right move by refusing to sell the iPhone 4S due to unruly crowds???
