(Beijing Apple Store)

Apple plans to add 25 stores in China over the next two years according to Fortune, who’ve been following the Apple shareholder meeting today.  Tim Cook said this week that Apple had plans to open 50 stores this year and it appears that half of those will be in China.

Apple seems to be taking China very seriously lately, especially with handset rival Google in limbo there after the hacking fiasco.  Although Apple had a slow start with the iPhone in China, they’ve been ramping up efforts there considerably.
