China Unicom Gets Wi-Fi iPhone Monday

China Unicom will begin selling Apple’s iPhone with Wi-Fi support next week. Come Monday, the carrier will add the Wi-Fi version of the 8GB iPhone 3GS to its handset lineup, something it couldn’t do previously because of a government regulation prohibiting the sale of Wi-Fi devices that don’t support China’s Wired Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure wireless standard. This bodes well for Apple, which has seen sales of the iPhone undermined by Wi-Fi-enabled gray market devices. With a Wi-Fi iPhone available for purchase through regular channels, sales through China Unicom could ramp up–-a boon for Apple, which has targeted China as its next major geographic growth opportunity.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
