Chinese Apple online store publishes New Year Gift Guide
As part of a continuing <a href="" rel='nofollow'>push</a> into the Chinese and Pacific Rim markets, Apple has <a href="'s-2013-chinese-new-year-gift-guide-goes-live/" rel='nofollow'>published a new gift guide</a> on its online store for the <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Chinese New Year</a>, being held this year on February 10. The holiday is a major event in China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and other areas with a sizeable Chinese immigrant populations, such as the west coasts of the US and Canada. The gift guide prominently features the iPad mini, which has recently become available in China.<br />
<br />
The Wi-Fi version of the iPad mini has been out for a short while in China and is continually <a href="" rel='nofollow'>selling out</a> as quickly as Apple can replenish the stock, and CEO Tim Cook confirmed earlier on Thursday during his <a href="" rel='nofollow'>visit to the country</a> that the cellular version should be shipping later on this month. In addition to the iPad, the guide offers a mix of Apple and third-party products, including an iRig keyboard and Apple's own SmartCover accessory, <em>M.I.C. Gadget</em> reports.

The company is offering free shipping and gift wrapping as part of the service for purchases, and the guide is available in China's mainland and various territories. The <a href="" rel='nofollow'>Hong Kong version</a> of the page is printed in English, but priced in local currency. In China itself, the holiday is known as the "Spring Festival" and is a long celebration with gifts, dances, fireworks and traditional red lanterns. The Western 2013 celebration brings in the "Year of the Snake."
