    Default Chinese iPhone Imminent?


    Will the iPhone ever make it to China? According to Tech.QQ the answer is yes, by the end of September 2009 via China Unicom.
    • The Apple and China Unicom deal will be a 3-year exclusive.
    • The iPhone will be customized for the China market (e.g. Chinese language and preloaded with “for China” apps).
    • China Unicom will pay Apple 3,000 CNY ($439 USD) per unit.
    • China Unicom will subsidize iPhone by pricing the iPhone below the 3,000 CNY paid to Apple. This would take the official iPhone price below the grey-market price for smuggled iPhones.
    • China Unicom has promised to sell a minimum 1 million units per year with significantly higher sales targets.
    • The iPhone for China will make use of Apple’s China App Store.
    Maybe we can finally put the no yes no China iPhone news to rest.

    “for China” apps - so lots of government spyware.
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    You serious? Big Brother? Government Control? Communism? Ladies and gentleman I believe someone needs to go take a Survey of world politics class at their local community college. Try to find the pothead hippie for a teacher, easier grading and sometimes more animated in their teaching strategy.

    could this be a CDMA iphone? I seem to remember hearing that that was a deal maker/breaker for China. If so that yields some loverly possibilities!

    No CDMA Unicom is a GSM provider. Apple refused to make a CDMA version as it would require reconfiguring a lot of the existing hardware. With such successful sales all over the world there is no reason to change production types for one company/country.
    This is getting a lil' ridiculous...

    And the countdown to why China shoots down the iPhone for the 453rd time begins.

    In that case, everyone should stop looking forward to Apple switching to Verizon, right?

    ^^Yea I didn't think so

    But if the rumors ARE true about apple signing to Verizon instead of AT&T then they would have to break that "rule" about GSM

    Apple will NOT go to verizon, as I have said many times it just ain't gonna happen.
    china Unicom used to own a CDMA network but them moved there CDMA network to China Telecom and now have a UMTS network.
    What I don't know, and would appreciate some help with, is what frequency their UMTS network runs on?

    [Edit] Scratch that, they use 2100Mhz. The same as just about everyone else outside of the Amercas[/Edit]
