Proview Isn’t To Blame For Pulled iPads: Amazon Is Not An Authorized Reseller, Even In China

It’s cold comfort to folks in China who want to pick up an iPad on, but some digging has led us to discover that Amazon was never an authorized iPad retailer and, as such, should have taken down all the iPads on its site long before the Proview/Apple lawsuits popped up on the tech radar.

Although the timing was fishy, our source informed us that there has been an ongoing dialogue with Amazon to remove the iPad from its shelves and that there are no iPads being pulled from stores in China except in isolated increments of 12 and 15 by overzealous enforcement officials. In short, Proview’s efforts are currently stymied and the case is still pending.
