Apple Sells Out of the iPhone 4 in China

Unlike the previous iPhone launch in China, Apple quickly sold out of its initial iPhone 4 supplies for the country, according to MacWorld.

China Unicom, which is the mobile carrier for the iPhone 4 in China, has basically sold out of its first shipment of the device, company vice president Li Gang told reporters on Tuesday. Earlier in the week, the mobile carrier reported that 200,000 users had pre-ordered the product. China Unicom has already stopped online reservations for iPhone 4, and is instead asking users to come directly to retail stores to sign up for the device.

Contrast this to the official launch of the iPhone 3G and 3GS in China last year which took over a month to reach 100,000 iPhone units sold.

China Unicom expects their second shipment of iPhone 4s to arrive October 1st, during the country's National Day Holiday.
