    Major Chinese news portal 163.com is reporting that Apple has finally signed a deal with China Unicom to bring the iPhone 3G to mainland China in October.

    Chinese users will get the iPhone 3G with 8GB for $365 with a 2-year contract and a monthly rate of $27 (minimum). The Wi-Fi function will be disabled initially but may be added in the future, along with China’s homegrown WAPI (WLAN Authentication and Privacy Infrastructure) standard.

    Also, it seems that China Unicom simply purchased a huge quantity of these devices, rather then entering into the same deal AT&T had to split the revenue on sales. I'm wondering if the Chinese government had a hand in the crippling of the Wi-Fi feature.
