Apple’s iPhone 4 in China is receiving overwhelming demand in the country with its pre-order exceeding over 200,000 units, sources said. The iPhone 4 was launched in the country on Saturday.
The China Unicom, which carries the smartphone in China, had stopped taking the orders as of now.
Currently, the iPhone 4 model was purchased by about 60,000 people from the China Unicom. Apple’s flagship stores also sell iPhone 4 in China. The China Unicom, however, is the only operator that carries iPhone 4 in the country. The telecom operator carries the smartphone with a two-year subscription.
It is to be noted that the sales of Apple’s other smartphones were much slower than the iPhone 4. The iPhone 3GS took about six weeks to reach the 1,00,000 mark in 2009.
Apple’s iPhone 4 received similar response from other major markets as well. In the US, about 1.7 million units of iPhone 4 were sold out in just three days of its launch. Similarly in Japan, Apple had made unprecedented sales of iPhone 4.
