iPhone Ready for China Launch at Last? (Again?)


Apple's on-again, off-again (on again, off-again, ad infinitum) negotiations to get the iPhone into China seem to be on again -- we think. Honestly, it's impossible to tell anymore so until an Apple exec actually announces it on stage (in September?) or we see millions of Chinese ditching their gray-market, WiFi-enabled international iPhones for state sanctioned China Unicom, we'll just keep waiting (and waiting) and seeing...

Still, with a handset as popular as the iPhone and a market as HUGE as China, it really is only a matter of time.

I still can't see Apple playing ball with a Communistic government and disabling wifi and censoring the web. I'll believe this one when I see it (First!)
