iPhone 4 - Total Sell-Out at China Unicom on the 1st day
China Unicom has stopped taking orders for the iPhone 4 after being swamped by customers seeking the new phone when it went on sale last Saturday. 200,000 orders were booked on the same day with 40,000 phones with contracts sold.
It took Unicom, the sole official supplier of the popular smartphone nearly six weeks to the sell the first 100,000 iPhones after they went on sale last year thanks to the quick launch by Apple.
Unicom is selling the phone for prices starting from 226 yuan ($33.70) a month for an 8GB phone with a two-year contract up to to 386 yuan for a 32GB device. Without contracts, the 16GB phone sells for 4,999 yuan and the 32GB for 5,999.
