iPad, meet the world’s biggest consumer market.  Apple today announced that the Wifi models of its iPad will be available in China on September 17th.  Legitimately.

iPad Wi-Fi models in China will be available for a suggested retail price of CNY3988 for 16GB, CNY4788 for 32GB and CNY5588 for 64GB.

No world on 3G models but we’re pretty certain there is some extra government complexity there.

Want to add that supercool new HDR functionality to your older iPhone? Not to worry. If you’ve jailbroken (or need a reason to) your iPhone 3GS or 3G and have iOS 4.1, it is just a few string mods away. Here are the steps via the very helpful Will:

  • Make sure you have installed OpenSSH through Cydia. When it’s installed, SSH into your device (I recommend you also use the “passwd” command to change your password from the default “alpine”)
  • If you have an iPhone 3G, grab the file located at /System/Library/CoreServices/
  • If you have an iPhone 3GS, grab the file located at /System/Library/CoreServices/
  • Add a key named “hdr-image-capture” with a boolean value of “true” to the “capabilities” section of this property list
  • Save it, and use SSH to replace the copy on the device with your modified version
  • Restart SpringBoard, or just reboot your device. You should now have access to the HDR setting in the camera application.
