It was a strong showing for Apple's two new iPhones this past weekend in China.
According to published reports Monday morning, China Unicom - China second-largest wireless carrier - reported that online reservations for Apple's iPhone 5C and 5S have already topped 100,000 units.
The new iPhones officially launch in China this Friday, September 20th. Amidst rampant rumors and evidence that a deal with China Mobile is also imminent, Apple could have a record-breaking iPhone sales rush across the Asian continent in the months ahead.
China Mobile Ltd. doesn’t have a distribution agreement with Apple for the iPhone. Cupertino, California-based Apple is close to securing a deal with China Mobile and is preparing to ship iPhones to the carrier, a person with knowledge of the matter said earlier this month.
