We all know that the Chinese love iPhones and anything related to them, from well-made electronic rip-offs to completely non-electronic products like iPhone5 ice cream . Well, according to the Chinese website sohu.com, pre-orders for the iPhone5 are already being taken by a mobile phone shop in China – and they even have a large poster advertising the iPhone5 in front of the store!
The poster, which supposedly features a picture of the iPhone5, does show an iPhone shaped product, on which the position of the camera seems to have moved to the center, as you can see in the photo above. Based on the comments of Japanese internet viewers who have seen the picture, the product actually seems to be the iPod touch.
In any case, the poster certainly is an example of aggressive and preemptive marketing, trying to be the first to secure customers even before a picture of the product has become available.
If you want to be one of the first people to pre-order an iPhone5, you may want to rush on to China!
