http://techcrunch.com – China Unicom announced that it received orders for more than 100,000 iPhone 5 units on its first day of pre-sales, according to a report on Sina Tech. A subsidiary of rival wireless operator China Telecom said that it had received pre-orders for more than 5,000 units. The lag between the iPhone 5′s US and China release dates was thanks to the wait for final regulatory approval from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Apple announced last week that the iPhone 5 will be available in China (and 50 other countries, including Brazil, Russia and Taiwan) on December 1 (IT news)
