China Unicom officially confirms Apple deal; iPhone will be launched in Q4
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.
There’s still no word on the official iPhone 3G price for China, but it’s said that the 8GB version will be offered for about $365 with a 2-yr contract agreement.
