iPhonAsia.com reports on news from Chinese site TechQQ [Google translation] that China Unicom has now sold 300,000 iPhones in that country. The milestone marks a significant acceleration of sales for China Unicom after it sold only 5,000 iPhones during its launch weekend at the end of October and took until early December to reach 100,000 iPhone sold.
Today we've learned that China Unicom has now passed the 300,000 iPhone sales threshold. This triples the 100,000 sales milestone reported on December 9. It took 40 days to reach 100,000 iPhone sales, and less than 20 days later iPhones sales in China have now hit the 300,000 mark. The Unicom iPhone Express has steadily picked up speed and is now steaming down the tracks.
China Unicom is currently the exclusive iPhone provider in China, although market leader China Mobile has continued to express interest in striking a deal with Apple to offer the device.
