For a country that has more than a billion people living there coupled with an ever growing middle class, you know for sure that it is one huge market; nay, gargantuan, and any company that makes it big there is going to reap the financial rewards for sure. Well, the iPhone 5 has been touted to be a best seller by Apple over the “opening weekend” so to speak (egads, we are talking about a phone release as though it was a movie premier), and to see it receive mandatory regulatory certification in China can only mean one thing – the iPhone 5 is well on its way to be sold in China.

According to Sina Tech, they noticed a couple of iPhones as having received the China Compulsory Certificate approval yesterday, with one of them being a WCDMA phone model A1429, while the other is a CDMA2000 version of the iPhone, sporting the model number A1442. This is not all there is to it before the iPhone 5 is sold in China though, as they will still need to obtain a network access license as well as a sign-off from the China Radio Management agency. Just how well do you think that the iPhone 5 will do in China? [Translated Page]
