That’s why the Apple Store in Beijing closed. Wired:
Apple closed its Beijing store Wednesday after crowds rushed it to load up on iPhones. Previously, there was a two-per-customer limit on iPhone 4s, which Apple incautiously abolished. The store was overrun with â€œscalpersâ€, buying up to 30 handsets at a time â€“ with stacks of cash â€“ to sell on at a profit. According to Chinese blog MIC Gadget, the scalpers were selling these phones right outside the doors of the Apple Store.
