Apple sets date for iPhone 4S in China

Apple has confirmed expectations and set a release date for the iPhone 4S in China. Its most recent phone will ship to the mainland on January 13 alongside 21 other countries, focusing mostly on Africa and the Caribbean. The roser includes Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Botswana, British Virgin Islands, Cameroon, Cayman Islands, Central African Republic, China, Dominica, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Grenada, Guam, Guinea Conakry, Ivory Coast, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Niger, Senegal, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago, Turks and Caicos, and Uganda.

As of the mid-month launch, the current-generation iPhone will be in 90 countries, bolstering the "fastest iPhone rollout ever," CEO Tim Cook said.

The addition of its most recent smartphone will be crucial to Apple's ambitions for Asia, where Android leads through a slew of usually cheaper smartphones from Huawei, ZTE, and smaller outlets. Apple's decision to discount the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 was meant to help in that area but hasn't given it a clear high-end option.
