China Telecom may just have played a part it never intended to in the release of the new iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. It inadvertently guaranteed that they would be available in the Chinese market by opening a pre-order booking of twin iPhones.
The Chinese carrier company, China Telecom has via a sweet serendipity spread the word that the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S would enter the Sino-market soon. Though by the now the post has vanished from SERP pages, while it lasted it claimed that the latest iPhones are to corner the Chinese commercial centers. This was according to China Telecom Corp. account on Sina's Weibo.
There is always the slightest chance of all this being nothing but smoke and mirrors. But even smoke and mirrors have an existence! Besides, with Apple having its eyes set on the Chinese trade complexes, it seems the so-called rumor may just be a solid reality. The recent list of accusations by China Labor Watch against a supplier of legal and ethical labor rights violations also may have prompted Apple to concentrate on pleasing the Chinese.
Taiwan and Hong Kong, both economic giants in their own right, have become the second largest market for Apple. The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook has said that soon it will be the #1 area of influence for Apple. And while the growth of Apple Incorporated in China seems to have halted in recent months, it may yet regenerate its image and profit from the venture that awaits it in the Land of Technological Infrastructure and Collectivism.
