The iPhone 4S goes on sale Friday midnight in China, and we can already tell that the phone is going to sell very well. There are reports online with photographs showing hundreds of people eagerly lining up outside Apple Stores in Beijing and Shanghai for the latest version of the iPhone. While we all know that Apple products don’t really need any promotions to sell themselves, the fact that China Unicom (the only iPhone carrier in the country) is offering heavy subsidies for the phone might be one of the reasons for the massive crowd as well. Apparently the iPhone 4S can be bought for as low as $45 (285 Yuan) with a multi-year contract – talk about low prices!
When compared to the launch of the Meizu MX on January 1st, Meizu has got nothing on Apple. What do you think of standing in line for hours just to get your hands on a new phone – is it something you would do? Or is waiting a few weeks to a month the more reasonable option? Sound off in the comments below.
