Why Apple’s new iPhones may underwhelm in China

The iPhone was once both the best phone and a highly coveted status symbol in China, and Apple stores witnessed near riots as customers rushed to buy. But the iPhone is no longer such an object of desire here and these models, while technically impressive, look to be too aesthetically undifferentiated to help return the iPhone to “bling” status.


As predicted in my previous post there was no announcement of a deal with China Mobile, the country’s dominant mobile operator. For the first time the iPhone is compatible with China Mobile’s network existing 3G and forthcoming 4G networks, which some interpret as a sign a deal is near.
