Apple is in talks with display maker Proview, which has recently gone bankrupt. For now, such uncertainty has delayed the launch of the new iPad into the largest market in the world. According to today's report, there are more than 1.33 billion potential buyers of the novelty in China.
At the moment, the dispute is under negotiation. IDG News Service spoke with a lawyer for the Chinese company and said:
Recall that Proview filed a lawsuit against Apple last year, claiming that it has all the rights to this trademark. If Apple loses its right to own the iPad brand, it will face heavy fines and a ban on the new iPad in the Chinese market.
The iPad 3 went on sale in twelve more countries yesterday and will ship in nine more before the end of the month.
Strange, but despite all the disassembly, the new iPad can be easily purchased in Shanghai. Are you tired of all the lawsuits around Apple yet?
