iPhone sales gain momentum in China

January 1, 2010

After a slow start, sales of iPhones are finally beginning to gain momentum in mainland China. Following the iPhone’s release earlier this year,¬†iPhonAsia reports China Unicom has managed to shift 300,000 units- a figure still considered relatively low considering the size of the Chinese market.

The increase in sales is largely credited to China Unicom’s 46-city iPhone roadshow and education campaign.

To be frank, if I were considering buying an iPhone I probably wouldn’t buy it through China Unicom either. ¬†Official iPhones sold in mainland China do not come with WiFi forcing all users to purchase data plans. Priced at a restrictive US$1000, consumers can easily purchase hacked iPhones for a similar price complete with WiFi.

Thoughts?
