Apple (AAPL) has clicked "reshuffle" on its China management team after supposedly suffering slower-than-expected expansion in the country.
Former IBM deputy General Manager Li Bin resigned from his Apple China General Manager position this week and the company has let go its vice president of the Asia Pacific Region. Kang Zhiyong will be the new Apple General Manager.
Apple says it has twelve resellers of iPod products in China, and revenue from the company's business in China account for less than 1% of the company's total global sales.
Many Chinese consumers opt to buy less-expensive MP3 players that tend to be more durable than iPod's harddrives, so the company has had problems with adoption of its products.
