China Unicom Receives 100,000 Pre-Orders for iPhone 5

Chinese mobile phone carrier China Unicom announced last week that it would launch the iPhone 5 on its network on December 14. Pre-orders launched for the phone not long ago and word has now surfaced that a massive number of orders were placed. China Unicom started taking reservations on Monday and received 100,000 pre-orders on the first day.

The 100,000 pre-orders were recorded by 4 PM local time. However, it's worth noting that none of the 100,000 people actually had to pay for the iPhone 5. The reservations were done with an ID card and another personal form of information in an attempt to curb rampant scalping that has harmed Apple device launches in the past within China.

Another Chinese carrier called China Telecom also booked 5000 pre-orders for the iPhone 5 on Sunday. However, the official launch date for the iPhone 5 on the China Telecom network is unknown.
