According to a story in the Wall Street Journal, as reported on by MacRumors, the iPhone 5 could be launched in China via China Telecom in late November or early December. The delay is all about when the iPhone 5 will get final approval from government officials, and today, China Telecom Chairman Wang Xiaochu said that the iPhone 5 will be available in early December, or possibly even sooner. However, China Unicom Chairman Chang Xiabing also commented on the matter, saying simply, We hope to offer it this year, but what I say doesnt matter. No doubt Apple, too, will be keen for the iPhone 5 to arrive in China as soon as possible, as MacRumors notes that China accounted for $5.7 billion in revenue for Apple in the last quarter along, representing 16% of Apples total revenue. Although the iPhone 5 has launched in many countries around the world already, Apple still intends to launch it in at least 100 further countries before the end of the year.
