Chinese Have To 'Win The Lottery" To Get An iPhone 5

Having to "win a lottery" to get an iPhone 5 in China is pretty damn sad. The phones are made right there and they still have to go through a lottery process?? frown

"At Apple’s retail store, the iPhone 5 can be ordered online and a lottery process determines who is eligible for pickup at the store the next day," White told AllThingsD after a visit to Hong Kong. "Based on our conversations, you might have a better shot at winning [an actual] lottery than getting the iPhone 5 the next day."
