iPhone makes official debut in China to lukewarm turnout

The iPhone has made its official debut in China to a rather lukewarm reception with no signs of the type of “sellout” receptions seen in other countries reports an article over on the WSJ.

Apparently hundreds did attend the China Unicom iPhone debut party on Friday night at a Beijing shopping centre, but no where near the thousands seen when the iPhone made its debut in the US or even Japan, and by Saturday night Beijing stores still had iPhone stock available.

Apparently analysts have said the iPhone faces a challenge in China as many potential Chinese customers have already purchased an iPhone from unauthorised sellers, or purchase the iPhone from another country.
