iPhone Slow to Catch On With Jiangxi Province Farmers
Sales of the iPhone in China appear to be picking up steam after a relatively underwhelming start. Though it took China Unicom, Apple’s (AAPL) carrier partner in the country, 40 days to sell its first 100,000 iPhones, the company managed to sell another 200,000 in the 20 days that followed.
So, 300,000 iPhones sold in China since the device arrived at market in early November. Clearly, that’s not the nearly the number Apple sold in the U.S. when the iPhone debuted in 2007. But it is an improvement over the paltry number sold at launch.
