The iPhone 4 was well received in China on Saturday with over 1,000 people lining up outside of Xidan Joy City Shopping Mall to buy the best iPhone to date. The first in line had apparently queued for two days.
China Unicom has reported that 50,000 users pre-ordered the device for launch day. The iPhone 4’s launch comes only 3 months after the U.S. launch which helped keep demand high despite a healthy grey market for the phones. In contrast, the iPhone 3G launched in China a full 2 years after its U.S. launch.
