The new iPad, which had hit the market of other countries and regions for a long time but just began selling in China in July 2012, is accused of despising Chinese market.

After spending 60 million U.S. dollars in settling the trademark infringement lawsuit, the defeated Apple Inc. finally began sales of the third-generation iPad products in China. However, it is uncontroversial that the new products, which had been sold in other countries and regions for a long time, lack of innovation.

Be it iPhone 4S or the third-generation iPad, Apple products are still beautiful, convenient and fashionable but no longer making people surprised. Obviously, the third-generation iPad has a fine change compared with the second-generation ones. Well-known for its technological revolution, Apple Inc. can hardly launder the suspect of lacking innovation because it launched the new products largely identical to the old ones.

The new iPad priced at between 3,688 yuan and 6,288 yuan are about to be put into Chinese market on July 20. The "sub-new products," which have come to the foreign market for more than half a year, have little difference compare with iPad2 and the only difference is the upgrade of hardware.
