We reported earlier that Apple would open a store in Amsterdam in March 2012. The time to open the new store is hours away at the time of this report being written.
Lawsuits from Proview, efforts to increase the availability of iPhone 4S and Foxconn controversies maybe giving Apple a headache in China.
Apple has fan-base all over the world. Even in those countries where its stores are not there. For example, let us take a look at Netherlands. So far there is no Apple store in Netherlands. However, the popularity of Apple products in Netherlands is so much that they sell like hot cakes.
