If any of you were expecting that China’s Unicom wasn’t really serious about the iPhone launch, here is what you might like to read. As per a recent deal between Apple and Unicom, the latter will receive a tweaked version of the iPhone from Apple which will be Wi-Fi disabled. You do not need to guess how Apple agreed to tweak the iPhone 3GS, after all, China Unicom has purchased an astounding 5 million iPhone 3GS units and that is just a preliminary order. Given the craze people in China have for such top-end gadgets (or for duplicating them at least) Unicom may justify spending $1.46 billion USD for the purchase of these handsets. To put things in perspective the Unicom launch inventory is at nearly the same number of handsets Apple sold worldwide in the last quarter. Since the Chinese are gearing up for this gadget, it is relevant to reveal that the handset will be priced at $352 USD for the 16GB and $704 USD for the 32GB variant.
