It seems because many users buy apple devices directly from America or other foreign country, it makes a very hard task to use iTunes with their apple devices. Some people have talked about that in our school bbs.
Sorry that I don't know the details, for I don't have any apple things and don't care too much about that. But I guess the main questions may be the crack to the apple devices in order to make them work better in china or can't have a good way to pay and register in apple online services.
An author of Wall Street Journal Chinese part said "Apple in China can only be a rotten potato." (Æ»¹ûÔÚÖÐ¹úÖ»ÄÜÊÇÀÃÍÁ¶¹-»ª¶û½ÖÈÕ±¨) (It's in Chinese)
But you say you don't have any apple "things", and don't care too much about that. Well, do you listen to music? I mean iPods are the best media players out there hands down, ipod nano, itouch etc. My self, I can't get through my life without my itouch .
I listen to music. But the price of iPod nano equal to 3 or more native brand products. And they almost have the same function. The choice is obvious for me. Good enough is enough.
These things are horrible
They don't cost so much, in USA, there is no media product which is even close to iPods. There are some noname brand media players but they either are very cheap and unreliable, along with small screens/lack of proper features etc. Nano has a camera, high definition video playback, not to mention you can plug into your TV and watch. Decent size screen etcetcetc, ( I have the iTouch [best of the best ]) but nano is cheaper, iTouch is for mass apps (jailbreak ftw) + more features.
But it totally depends on the person.
You see stuff that is from a big name brand company such as Apple or Windows give you quality and you should be satisfied. I belive that Apple products are more user friendly that is why they make a lot of there mobile products touch screen. Now my point is,is that it's personal prefrence. If you just want to listen to music then might as well get a cheap piece of Sh** that plays music. Or you could go for an Ipod which you can do much more on depending on what kind of Ipod you got.
Can people buy it so I can laugh at you?
Wow, so you can have a compass in a Woman's Tampon, Congratulations,
Apple products have become so laughable from the great OSX to the miserable woman's tampon! THE IPAD!
I love apple for its insanely good OS, Ipod and Iphone, but this?

The elite list of disadvantages is as follows;
- No multitasking
- No Adobe Flash (yet)
- No camera or iChat capabilities
- No HDMI port
- 4 aspect ratio
- Still dependent on AT&T's 3G service
- Dependence on adapters
The list doesn't end here.
