‘China Unicom and the Apple iPhone 3G’ story has been nothing short of an epic. Every month there is something new we hear about the ‘China Unicom ready to sell iPhone 3G’ story and all that gets dismissed as hearsay with in no time. It was first reported that China Unicom has bought 5 million iPhone 3G S handsets and the reports were later denied. Then surfaced the story which revealed that the iPhone 3G to be sold by China Unicom will come without WiFi support which too vanished in to thin air for the lack of evidence and now there is another story doing rounds. As per a recent deal between Apple and China Unicom, the iPhone 3G will arrive in China in October and this will soon (probably tomorrow) be confirmed with an official announcement. The users across China will get the iPhone 3G 8GB for $365 on a two-year contract and a monthly fee of $27.
Now it is again being predicted that the phone will be WiFi disabled initially but may be added in the future (someone give us the logic behind this please). The fate of the 3G S variant still hangs in the balance with nothing concrete announced about its release. We will be relieved of a lot of torture if there is an announcement coming in a mater of hours and so will be the patient Chinese customers.
