China unicom to sell iphone in China soon

It's reported that China unicom will begin to sell iPhone on the Chinese market on 15 October, 2009, it's said that every preparation is under way.

According to some reports, China unicom will sell iPhone 8GB at 1,999 RMB, 16GB at 2,999 RMB, but the user has to sign a two-year contract with China unicom and promissing a monthly bill 186 RMB at least.

 Apple and China unicom anounced on 28 August that they had reached an agreement on the sales of iPhone in China, in which China unicom agreed that it will buy 5 million iPhone from Apple, and will pay a total of 10 billion Chinese yuan to Apple.

 To our superise, this deal between Apple and China Unicom is not exclusive, which means Appl can still sell its mobile phones to China mobile and China telecom.

So will Apple become the largest winner in China? Especially considering Apple has a huge number of fans on the Chinese market? We'll wait and see.

Foxconn's marriage with Apple iphone

Foxconn iDPBG plant image   January 9, 2007 Apple (Apple, Inc.) CEO Steve Jobs at Macworld announced the launch of iPhone, in that same year, Foxconn entered into a contract with Apple to manufacture iPhone for Apple (OEM).

    After signing the contract, Foxconn iDPBG (Digital Products Group ) was set up in Guan town, Shenzhen city, Guangdong province, in east China. At the same time, iDPBG recruited about some sixty thousands of employees, numerous buildings were built, and various machines were introduced.  

Foxconn iDPBG plant image     Foxconn is a giant OEM company in the world, it offered the same service to Nokia, Motorola and Samsung as to Apple. Due to the cheap labor force in China and its manufacturing experience accumulated over the years, Foxconn can offer a whole competitive manufacturing solution to the famous mobile and computer giants around the world. Every day, hundreds and thousands of containers being shipped to the rest of world.

     Apple used to be the pc giant, however, owning to the lack of innovation, it lagged behind of Microsoft and Dell etc, the consumers were expecting a new Apple. This is only possible after the former CEO Steve Jobs returned to Apple and innovation, again regained its position in Apple. People did not expect the great success of iPhone after Steve Jobs introduced it to the world.

    So things became clearer, iPhone became so popular across the global that Apple needed to make lots of it. People used to see that hundreds of iPhone fans lined up just to buy a iPhone. As most cell phone companies would do, Apple chose Foxconn, whether to produce the large quantity of iPhone, or to reduce cost, Foxccon is always the best choice. That's why Foxconn began its marriage with Apple iPhone.
