iPad Sales in China Rise After Trademark Dispute Settlement

The New iPad

iPad sales are on the rise in China. This after a settlement between Apple and Proview over the iPad trademark.

A while back we heard about Apple and their trademark battle with Proview, a company that claimed ownership to the iPad name in mainland China. It got a bit messy.

They fought it in the courts for a while, but the two have finally fixed things up and Apple paid out $60 million for the iPad name in China. According to IDC analyst Dickie Chang, the iPad’s sales in China in the third quarter have risen up to 2.07 million units. That’s a jump of 80 percent in iPad sales. Not bad.

Now that it’s officially available in China, it’s doing very well. Everybody seems happy. Right?
