    via AppleInsider:

    China Unicom intends to sell it first iPhones in September, and has purchased $1.46 billion worth of the devices from Apple, according to new reports.

    Citing local media's claims this week, the International Business Times states that Apple sold 5 million iPhones to the company at a cost of 10 billion yuan. That means the custom WCDMA phones without Wi-Fi sold for 2,000 yuan, or $293 each.

    "The price of the 8G standard iPhone is set at about 2,400 yuan and the 16G may be sold at 4,800 yuan," said Yu Zaonan, general manager of the customer development department of China Unicom in Guangzhou.

    To put the 5 million total in perspective, the iPhone maker sold 5.2 million total iPhones worldwide in the last financial quarter.

    So then China Mobile did tell Apple to take their deal and go pound sand. Nice. It means they will be pushing Android hard in that country.

    CDMA iPhone? NO! I am too selfish for that. I want the iPhone all to me and my AT&T! Overpriced and crowded network all the way!
