After two years of being released internationally, the iPhone has finally been released in China. Quite ironic, considering the fact that the iPhone is made in China. One important aspect to note however is that there is no Wifi in these iPhones, a feature that is perhaps used often by many iphone users worldwide. The iPhone in China is being released by Unicom, Apples official network provider. The price for the new iPhone in China, as quoted from Mashable, are between 4,999 yuan($730) and 6,999 yuan($1,025).
You may be wondering why there is no Wifi, considering it is an integral part of how the iPhone runs. Well, as it turns out, Wifi was banned temporarily in China. However, the ban has been lifted and there is widespread speculation that the next batch of iPhones in China will have Wifi. Until that time however, it would be interesting to see how the iPhone sales fare in China.Google+
