Apple's iPad 2 (Wi-Fi only) went on sale on the Chinese mainland Friday, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.
The lower prices, better function and sufficient stock will squeeze the profit space of scalpers and other tablet computer makers, the report said.
According to the latest survey by Nielson, Apple's iPad took the largest share (82 percent) in the US tablet market, split between Wi-Fi only models (43 percent) and 3G+Wi-Fi (39 percent). Samsung, Dell and Motorola came after Apple -- with 4 percent, 3 percent and 2 percent, respectively, in the market.
