Apple is doing booming business in China, the company just announced on its earnings call.COO Tim Cook said Apple generated $2.6 billion in revenue last quarter from the greater China region, which includes Hong Kong and Taiwan, a 4X increase from the same period a year ago.

To put that number in perspective, Apple generated $3 billion in revenue for all of the 2010 fiscal year in China. (The last quarter was fiscal Q1.)

Part of the reason Apple is doing so well in China is its new retail stores.

Earlier on the call, CFO Peter Oppenheimer said Apple’s Chinese stores have the most foot traffic, and highest sales of any Apple stores in the world.
