China Unicom announcing Wo 3G brand/service today

China Unicom, the second largest Chinese mobile carrier, is getting ready to roll-out its first UMTS/3G network starting May 17.

According to C114.net, the 3G brand is called “Wo” and it will be announced later today in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou – the three most populous cities in China. 

The service will come with no less than 49 new 3G devices, including more than 40 phones from Nokia, Samsung, LG, Sony Ericsson, ZTE, Huawei, Sharp, Lenovo and others. By the year’s end, the giant carrier plans to offer 3G services to 284 cities across China.
