New Apple CEO Tim Cook is in Asia to open New Apple Stores?

New Apple CEO is starting to warm up for October 4th iPhone 5 unveiling by opening new flagship stores in China and Hong Kong.

This weekend Apple opens two new Apple Stores in Asia. On September 23 the new Apple Store in Shanghai opens its doors followed by the new Hong Kong Apple Store on Saturday. According to MICGadget the local press in Hong Kong is talking about Tim Cook attending the Store openings. These store openings would mark the first public appearance of Tim Cook as CEO of Apple as far as i know.

Asia is a big driving factor for Apple's business. And the company is still at the very beginning to leverage the vast Asian market. It would be no surprise if Tim Cook is personally opening these two new Apple Stores. It would give Tim Cook nice PR to make this trip and he can enjoy some great Asian food while he is there. The Shanghai Apple Store is the 5th in mainland China. The Hong Kong Apple Store is in the upscale IFC Mall. It is expected that the store opening in Hong Kong will draw huge lines.
