China Unicom struggles to fill 200,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders

updated 10:00 am EDT, Mon September 27, 2010

Over 60,000 phones sold so far

China Unicom is having a hard time keeping up with the demand for the iPhone 4, according to official statements. The carrier notes that while it actually received some 200,000 pre-orders last week, only about 60,000 phones were sold during Saturday's launch. Of these 40,000 went to individuals, while 10,000 fulfilled direct distribution bulk orders. The remaining 10,000 units are not mentioned in a Unicom press release.

China is a potentially lucrative market for Apple. Even though many in the country remain poor, a population of over 1.3 billion is still seeing growing middle and upper classes. The iPad's recent arrival in the region was greeted with solid interest, though not as high as for the iPhone 4.
