May suggest Cook will spend week in China
Earlier on Wednesday, Apple CEO Tim Cook was spotted at a Chinese reseller, Dragonstar, AppleInsider notes. The vendor is based inside the China World Shopping Mall in Beijing. In a photo, Cook can be seen talking with store staff; one of the other people in the image appears to be Apple's senior VP for worldwide product marketing, Phil Schiller.
Earlier this week Cook was reported to have met with China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, Miao Wei. Apple has refused to say how long Cook is staying in the country, but his Dragonstar visit may suggest that Cook will be in the region for the rest of the week, or possibly longer. On past visits the executive has typically stayed several days.
