But Apple would also need to be careful having signed exclusive deals with operators to sell its iPhone, including O2 in the U.K. and AT&T in the U.S. As part of the deal, Apple requires the operators to pay it a portion of their iPhone subscriber revenue. I m sure they will have some comments if Apple just ended up selling devices in China.
Whatever the arrangements maybe, I m confident iPhone will hit the market big time in China and I dont see how it wont do well. Most of the people that i know in China cant wait to get their hands on one. I can only keep my fingers cross and hope that it will be made available in China soon.
