The iPhone is Finally Ready to Fly to China

On Friday, China Unicom (CHU – news – people), known as CHU announced the deal, which states that it will bring Apple’s (AAPL – news – people) iPhone to China by the beginning of the first quarter. This move will undoubtedly open up a huge market, as there are 687 million wireless subscribers across the country.

Jeffrey Fidacaro, the Susquehanna Financial Group analyst argued over the deal on the same day. He said that the deal would eventually translate into another 2 million sales of the iPhone if Apple gets successful in grabbing 3% of the 65 million of China Unicom’s postpaid subscriber base to 70 million.

According to the deal, China Unicom, instead of sharing its revenue with the Cupertino, a California base company will buy the handsets directly from Apple. The deal further declares that the iPhones sold by China Unicom will not have the capability of Wi-Fi, which means the people of China will not have the benefit of Wi-Fi connection on their iPhones.


However, the deal - without any such clause could have been a huge opportunity for the iPhone developer, who put in all their efforts to create unique applications for the samrtphone platform, which they wish to cater to every user across the world. Colin Smith, the vice president and co-founder of Freeverse, one of the finest mobile phone game developers said: "China was definitely the big one,"-and it was indeed. Even though, North America (the iPhone first went on sale here) is and will remain the strongest market for Freeverse, nearly 40% sale of some of the games developed by the company has been across Europe. As Smith believes that the popularity of a game varies from market to market, in his view about China he says: "It's a big unknown for us,".Apple iPod touch 8 GB (2nd Generation--with iPhone OS 3.1 Software Installed) [OLD MODEL]

Even though, there are a lot speculations and assumptions around the market regarding the acceptance and popularity of the iPhone in China, it seems that the device will undoubtedly change the outlook of every smartphone user in the country and will also open up a new horizon for iPhone app developers.
