As expected, China Unicom today confirmed the fact that it has reached an agreement with Apple for distributing the iPhone 3G across China.

In a press release which mainly presents its interim results, the second largest Chinese mobile carrier stated that it has signed a 3-yr agreement with Apple.

The company said that the iPhone 3G would be on sale starting the fourth quarter of this year – lending credence to the info unveiled earlier by several Chinese websites, according to which October is the month when the iPhone will be available.
