Ranked ‘third the nerd’ in landsize, China isn’t about to be outdone when kicking up a media storm – especially when regarding the iPhone, a product of the world’s fourth largest country, the USA. Japan, USA, a few others, and now Canada – the world is awake, with arms stretched up, praying for the salvation of Chinese souls as the divine Jesus phone divinely descends upon the world’s oldest and largest civilisation.
Good news for China, Apple, and iPhone customers in China – mixed news for America, Canada, Japan, and every country that are slaved to one carrier. According to CNN, an Apple Spokesperson admitted that, the China Unicom agreement “is not an exclusive deal”. What that means for Apple is huge: China has the largest mobile phones market in the world, the largest customer bass and a competitive system. While the China Unicom is China’s 2nd largest carrier, flexibility to cater to other companies, such as the nation’s largests carrier, China Mobile for instance, mean that much bigger piece of the pie.
