While the iPhone 4 success is no doubt huge – despite the several reported problems like Antennagate and the proximity sensor – China looks to be the next market for Apple’s iPhone 4 world domination with state-run telecommunications company China Unicom announcing it will sell the device next month, according to state-run media.
China Unicom has not confirmed any deals with Apple, but the company has an exclusivity agreement with Cupertino, as it started offering the iPhone 3G sans wireless features. It recently launched the iPhone 3GS, and this one was allowed to have its wireless features in tact.
Also, the telco is rumoured to be distributing the iPad into the country, according to the Caixin media group – citing an unidentified source within. However, no timetable has been set for the iPad launch.
