While most people would think that the lack of Wi-Fi, coupled with sales of “only” 5,000 iPhones at launch would be disappointing, it seems that the App Store is doing rather well in China, despite all the hurdles that it’ll have to clear. Let’s not forget that the current official iPhone in China only sports 3G internet and users who want to purchase stuff from the App Store will need to have a credit card from a Chinese bank. Of course, if the news that there will be a new iPhone sporting Wi-Fi in China will certainly help boost the App Store business in that region and the possibility that the iPhone will be released on China Mobile will make it even better.
