Apple Solves iPhone 4 Scalping Problem in China

Apple’s figured out a way to beat the iPhone 4 scalpers who have been peddling the devices outside its retail outlets in China to anyone willing to pay a 10-percent mark-up over the sticker price. Potential customers must now reserve their iPhones online, before picking them up at an Apple retail store.

And in order to complete the purchase, they must provide identification — a passport or identity card — that matches that used to make their online reservation. Finally, pre-orders have been limited to one iPhone 4 per day to further discourage scalping.
