4 hurt, glass broken in tussle in iPad 2 line at Beijing Apple store

4 hurt, glass broken in tussle in iPad 2 line at Beijing Apple store
Hysteria over the launch of the iPad 2 has led to four would-be buyers being injured, and a glass door being smashed through at the Beijing flagship Apple store.

The state press says four people were taken to the hospital after "a foreign" Apple employee jumped into the crowd "to beat" people who had allegedly cut in line.



In response, the crowd smashed the glass front door and rushed the store in anger, leaving those four injured.

Just like in the United States and other nations, there were hours worth of lines for the iPad 2, which just went on sale in China this weekend.

The store closed and has not yet re-opened, and a sign has been posted saying "queue jumping and the unauthorised sales of Apple products would not be tolerated."

    seriously, get their leader [Jobs] to autograph an ipad and throw it into a crowd and watch them kill each other over it!

    LOL. What a bunch of losers Apple Fanboys are. Little do they realize they can go next door and buy a small netbook with more functionality, better performance, and for half the price of an iPad.
