애플이 중국에 저항하지 않는 것은 막강한 물량 때문이겠죠.

중국의 WAPI 기준에 부합되지 않기에 WiFi를 s/w 적으로 죽이기만 해도 되겠지만

적극적으로 아예 모듈을 덜어 내는 것은 백기 들었다고 봐야죠..

허허허..


참고로 중국은 Wi-Fi를 돌릴려면 대륙의 기준인 WAPI를 만족해야 합니다.

중국은 뭐든 대륙의 기준이 남다릅니다.

wireless DTV, Mobile TV, Wi-Fi 등등 모조리..

내수 규모가 왠만한 권역 규모와 맞먹는 다는 것은 정말 엄청난 것입니다.


Report: ‘Crippled’ iPhone coming to China in September

Posted by Philip Elmer-DeWitt

iphone-china-unicom-112

China Unicom and Apple (
AAPL) have reportedly signed an agreement to launch a specially-built version of the iPhone in China, perhaps as early as September.

The report, published Friday by China Business Network, credits Hon Hai — the world’s largest manufacturer of electronics components and Apple’s long-time partner — with helping broker the deal.

Under its terms, Hon Hai — using its tradename Foxconn — will build a special version of the iPhone for the Chinese market with Wi-Fi disabled, allowing Apple to get around Beijing’s restrictions on handsets with high-speed Internet capability.

“I believe we are at the beginning stages of a mobile revolution,” says iPhonAsia editor Dan Butterfield, who explored the implications of the deal Friday in a long Q&A with China’s Mobinode.tv (see below).

There were several independent reports last week that Hon Hai is already manufacturing the crippled iPhones — code named “model 90″ — and that the China Telecommunication Technology Labs have begun mandatory testing.

Such tests are required by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and usually take at least a month, which is why the phone is not expected to reach Chinese consumers much before September.

In his Mobinode Q&A, Butterfield draws a picture the size and nature of the potential market:

“There are over 700 million wireless consumers in China. The majority are youthful, status conscious, and they want to own cool smartphones loaded with the latest apps/games and mobile technologies that allow them to interact with one another.

“While incomes are lower in China compared to western markets, China still has tremendous consuming power. There are an estimated 340,000 millionaires in China and there is also a growing middle-class. An estimated 290 million Chinese households can be classified as middle-class with monthly incomes ranging from 5,000 CNY to 15,000 CNY ($732 to $2,196 USD). Chinese tend to save a relatively high share of their monthly take home pay. Rainy day savings can sometimes be spent on more expensive items, particularly if the product has status and is used every day … think iPhone.

“All of this adds up to a tremendous potential market for Apple’s iPhone. Using conservative estimates, I believe Apple can capture a full 2% share of the wireless market in China within the first 12 months of an official iPhone launch. That’s 14 million iPhones and perhaps another 2 million or so coming via grey-market iPhone sales.”

    뭐 이긴다 진다라기 보다, 거대한 수익을 낳는 시장이니 당연한 선택이 아니었을까 합니다만-

    안그래도 애플 제품들은 마진율이 엄청 높은데, 그나마도 부품 하나 더 제거하고 파는거니

    애플입장에서는 거절할 이유가 없겠죠- 물량으로 따지면 무선랜 모듈 하나 떼어네는 공정

    추가해도 엄청 남을테니.....

아이폰 나노가 나올 것이란 얘기는 신빙성이 없지만,  

중국 Unicom이 아이폰을 수입 발매 할 것라는 말이 돌아 다니고 있네요

 

빠르면 Shipping 5월이라고 하고,  

보안 상의 문제로 GPS가 빠진 모델이 공급될 것이라는 얘기도 함께 잇습니다.  

차이나 모바일은 작년에 한 번 물 먹었는데, 유니콤이랑 애플이 잘 되면 배 좀 아프겠죠?

Apple iPhone poised for China touchdown

1.3 billion to be served

It appears that Apple's plan to introduce its iPhone to 1.3 billion potential Chinese customers may have taken one more step towards reality.

According to ChinaTechNews.com, China Unicom "reportedly" reached an agreement with Apple that would bring the über-successful smartphone to the world's most populous market as soon as May of this year.

This latest rumor is one in a long series of informed speculation concerning Apple's Chinese plans. One analyst, for example, conjectured that Apple would resurrect its original GPS-free iPhone in order to please a security-conscious Chinese government.

Another theory is that the ChiPhone will be the oft-scuttlebutted iPhone Nano, a smaller-screen version of the current model.

If true, China Unicom's success in its iPhone negotiations with Apple would be a blow to China Mobile, whose talks with Apple regarding their handling of Chinese iPhone service reportedly broke down over a year ago.

But the China Unicom deal makes sense - if only because China Mobile has been granted the uniquely Chinese TD-SCDMA standard in the three-way 3G contract distribution recently announced by the Chinese government.

In that three-provider deal, China Telecom was awarded the contract for Qualcomm’s not-terribly-widespread CDMA-2000 standard, and China Unicom was grated the rights to WCDMA.

The iPhone supports WCDMA. China Unicom is a WCDMA provider.

ChinaTechNews.com's rumor makes sense. ??
