China Unicom to launch iPhone 4 on Sept 16th
(Beijing) – China Unicom is set to launch Apple’s iPhone 4 on the mainland September 16th, according to a source from China Unicom. But not Maxis or DiGi (leaked memo).
According to the source, customers that want to buy the iPhone 4 from China Unicom will need to order the phone online in advance.
China Unicom, the exclusive provider of Apple’s iPhone in China, launched the 8G version of the iPhone 3GS on August 9.
To alleviate the antenna issue & sporadic reception problem inherent in the iPhone 4, China Unicom will be offering iPhone 4 cases to customers as a free gift.
