Albeit all signs are currently pointing towards China Unicom acting as the exclusive iPhone carrier in China before two long, Unicom’s upfront buy of five million iPhone units seems to be in question. According to Cellular News, China Unicom’s spokesman Yi Difei declared about the 5 million order rumors that they are “not true”.
However, the spokesman did say that “talks between us and Apple have been going on for some time”, albeit without reaching an agreement yet.
Tiffany Yang, an Apple spokeswoman in Beijing, also said that there are no clear details about iPhone’s official launch in China.
Current guesses point towards a launch in September, though final details have yet to surface for that country’s launch.
