Authentic Apple Gear to be offered by China’s Cybermart

Apparently Apple is to have a new outlet in China for their iOS and Mac gear and that new outlet is to be Chinese electronics retailer Cybermart, where apparently people can pick up a fake iPhone but will soon be able to purchase authentic Apple stuff.

According to an article over on the Boy Genius Report by Zach Epstein, DigiTimes is claiming that Cybermart International, which happened to be owned by none other than iPhone parts maker Foxconn has been granted distribution rights to offer Apple products.

Word is Cybermart has plans to open some 500 officially Apple licensed stores across China, Taiwan and Hong Kong, with the first Apple licensed store opening on the 1st of April, unless of course this is some strange really early April Fools.

Currently Cybermart has some 34 electronics stores across China with 7 or 8 more shops expected to open later in the year. So I wonder if now that they can officially offer the iPhone they will stop offering knockoff Apple Gear.
