IPhone 4 Blowout in China
The iPhone 4 has sold out in China, just four days after its market debut. China Unicom, Apple’s carrier partner in the country, said today that it’s sold about 100,000 iPhone 4s–more than 40,000 on the first day they were available–exhausting initial supplies. Currently, there are some 100,000 units on back order, and China Unicom has suspended online reservations for the device (in-store reservations are still going strong).
Quite a change from last year and the launch of the iPhone 3G and 3GS, when it took a little over a month for China Unicom to hit the 100,000-units-sold milestone
Said Li Gang, senior vice-president of China Unicom “The sales of previous versions of iPhones created a solid foundation for the explosive performance of the iPhone 4 this year.”
