iPhone Officially Launched In China

Apple’s iPhone has officially gone on sale in China. Despite the country being the world’s largest mobile market, there wasn’t any frenzy like the iPhone launches in other countries. While you might suggest it’s a cultural difference or other reasons, it’s most likely caused by 2 factors. The first being that the iPhone in China doesn’t have Wi-Fi, and the second would be the pricing scheme, as the 8GB iPhone 3G would set you back about $732, and the 32GB 3GS will set you back about $1,025, certainly not lunch money. Of course, for those prices, folks could always go source for gray-market iPhone models, so it will be interesting to see how things work out for Apple and China Unicom. Apparently the carrier is hoping to sell 5 million devices in 3-years, so we’ll have to sit back and see how things go, won’t we?
