  • First iPhone 4 Sales Surface from China



    Reports of iPhone 4 sales in China quickly depleting supplies are being corroborated by cold hard sales data today, as China Unicom has revealed some noteworthy statistics about the 4th generation Apple smartphone's arrival in the world's largest mobile community.

    According to figures presented in People's Daily from China Unicom, sales of the iPhone 4 topped 100,000 within the first 100 hours of the device's availability. Compare that impressive burst of sales to the iPhone's less than stellar roll out last year. During the first full week of the iPhone's availability in China during 2009, China Unicom gained a scant 5,000 iPhone customers.

    Without question, the global popularity of the iPhone 4 has given the device a major boost of momentum in China.
    Also helping, naturally, is the savvy marketing strategy behind getting the iPhone 4 in Chinese consumers' hands. This time around, customers who sign up with China Unicom for the 16GB iPhone 4 (with a 2-year contract) get the iPhone free of charge in return for paying a $43 charge per month.

    It should also be noted, however, that the sales figures released by China Unicom are those of the Chinese mobile operator only. Apple is yet to provide company-specific sales data from the company's retail outlets located in China.

      Also look at what they offer "sign up with China Unicom for the 16GB iPhone 4 (with a 2-year contract) get the iPhone free of charge in return for paying a $43 charge per month". That offer is hell of a lot better than what the minimum requirements is here, yet can not sell out on first hour or even the first day.

      $43/month and get a phone free, yes it does not say the terms of the service but it is almost 1/2 what I am paying now plus I had to pay $200 for the phone.
      It really amazes me how dumb some people really are…

      Do you know how poor some people are in China? Some don’t even know what a phone is let alone the iphone 4…

      US$43 a month may be cheap for you, but for the majority of people in China it is a week’s salary. If you are in the rural area that could be a month of family income.

      Why iPhone 4 is having much Trouble Moving as fast as in USA is not the Cost issues but this is a Country that 90% of Phones Produced for internat use have DUAL SIM function.. Chinese people are use to using DUAL SIM phones with 2 numbers and iPhone is not going to change that.
