China may get the iPhone 5 in the next few weeks. Reports are stating that the iPhone 5 has received final certification from Chinese regulators. This is great news for everyone that has been patiently waiting to pick one up.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Vendors in China often start selling new handsets within weeks of approval by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center. […]
The regulator said in two posts on its website that it had approved licenses for an iPhone supported by China Telecom and one supported by China Unicom.
This doesn’t mean that the iPhone 5 will be out for sure, but there’s a pretty good chance we’ll see a launch by the end of the year. China is one of Apple’s biggest markets so don’t worry, Cupertino won’t be holding back the release.
