Apple’s iPad 2 pulled from Amazon China as lawsuit looms

Apple’s class-leading iPad 2 tablet has been pulled from Amazon’s website in China following a lawsuit filed by Chinese firm Proview International. Proview recently filed suit against Apple for using its trademarked “iPad” name, seeking to ban sales of the iPad in China and abroad. Apple contends that it licensed the name from Proview, which has now unlawfully reneged on its deal. “Proview refuses to honor their agreement with Apple in China,” and Apple spokesperson said on Tuesday. “Our case is still pending in mainland China.” While no ruling has been made, Chinese officials reportedly seized a number of Apple tablets earlier this week and now Amazon has pulled the iPad from its website, as has rival Chinese retailer Suning. It is not currently clear if the sales halts are court-ordered.
