Yes, according to SOHO China’s Pan Shiyi (潘石屹) on his Sina Weibo (like Twitter but better) Sunday evening. Pan said he had just met with Apple China head Lu Lei (卢雷) who told him the official China launch for the iPad was likely to be in August.

Pan, who with 999,000 followers is the ninth most-followed person on Weibo, quickly deleted the post, and today wrote an apology for any problems he may have caused.

If true I imagine Steve Jobs will not particularly pleased with China head Lu Lei.
