Apple plans to open Hong Kong store later this quarter

Apple will soon have five stores in China

Apple plans to open its first retail store in Hong Kong later this quarter, according to a company spokeswoman.

It will be the company's fifth Apple Store in China: There are already two in Beijing and another two in Shanghai.

The new store will be located in Hong Kong's IFC mall.

Apple did not say when the store will open, although media reports have said it will open on Sept. 24.

China has been a fast growing market for Apple. In previous quarters, revenue and iPhone sales in the country have boomed, according to statements made by the company's CEO Tim Cook. Demand has been so high that fake Apple stores have appeared in the country, with unauthorized sellers using the company's logo to decorate their shops.

In the past Apple has spoken of opening 25 stores in China, but so far it has expanded at a slower pace. Aside from the company's own stores, Apple also sell its products through authorized resellers across China.

Apple is also planning on opening an additional store in Shanghai, which will be the company's largest in China. Apple has yet to say when that store will open.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
