China Unicom iPhone 4 sales break 100,000

updated 03:30 pm EDT, Wed September 29, 2010

Carrier still attempting to fill pre-orders

China Unicom has managed to sell over 100,000 iPhone 4s since last Saturday's launch, according to the carrier's vice president, Li Gang. While fast, the sales still mean a backlog, as some 200,000 people had pre-ordered the phone as of last week. Gang says he only expects the next shipment of iPhone 4s to arrive on October 1st, China's national holiday.

The current sales rate vastly outstrips last year, when it took Unicom over a month to reach the 100,000 mark with the iPhone 3G and 3GS. Chinese models were initially crippled by a lack of Wi-Fi however, a consequence of government regulations. Those restrictions were eventually eased, and feature-complete phones were made available in August.

Unicom has halted online reservations for the iPhone 4. To order, people must now visit a retail outlet instead. Apple is likewise directing questions about stock to shops, some of which have already sold out.
