The Apple App Store hits China

Mashable reports that the Unicom starts selling the iPhone today in China. As expected, it lacks WiFi. However, Unicom says (Yi Difei, Unicom spokesman) that they are talking with Apple about including WiFi in the next iPhone release:

We are talking with Apple and expect the problem to be solved by the end of this year

The major problem for Unicom right now is that the iPhone is available on the black market.

In August, we reported on the Games category being not available on the Chinese App Store. On October 23 however, the Games category became available, providing game developers access to the large Chinese market.
