Finally! The iPhone is officially coming to China on China Unicom. China Unicom announced a 3 year deal to sell the iPhone in China.
Talk of this has been going on forever. Rumors and reports already pointed to a deal between Apple and China Unicom, but China Unicom denied that the deal was settled until now.

In an annual report announcing the Interims results for 2009, China Unicom mentions the iPhone deal: "On 28 August, the Company and Apple reached a three-year agreement for the Company to sell iPhone in China. The initial launch is expected to be in the fourth calendar quarter of 2009. This will provide users with brand new communication and information experience."
China Unicom will start selling the iPhone starting later this year.
How big the impact of the iPhone in China will be is hard to predict.
