Apple’s iPhone 5S and 5C had preorders that exceeded 100,000 in China. However, this does not even come close to matching the previous record presales figures of former smart phones by the company. This latest piece of news comes to us courtesy of China Unicom. After the debut of the two novel smart phones earlier, China Unicom became the carrier for them in the Land of Chopsticks and Ming Vases. Nothing has been said regarding their cost price yet though. 

The other carrier, China Telecom benefited considerably from the sales of the smart phones. Between the two, that is China Unicom and China Telecom, there is a total reign of reason in matters of cost competitiveness. Meanwhile, the 3G subscription evolution is balanced as regards qualitative and quantitative analysis. 

China Unicom and China Telecom happen to be the second and third biggest wireless carriers in the Sino-sphere. They may even make a pact with China Mobile in the quest to outsell the iPhones they are supporting. 

Meanwhile, the iPhone 5C is expected to sell well due to the colorful plastic nature of this device. It is attractive enough for the common man on the street, who is easily lured by shiny, glittery things. The five hues it comes in appeal to the eyesight. Therefore, despite weak preorder sales in China, the future of both the iPhone 5S and 5C appears to be bright indeed.
