Chalk this one up as just another rumor for now, but whispers around the Chinese web have it that China Unicom could be netting Apple's latest handset (yeah, that 3G one) this August. If you'll recall, Steve had issues
in the past getting Chinese carriers
to buy into his demanding revenue sharing model, but now that those days are gone
, we suspect talks may go a little smoother. And c'mon, Apple didn't add in Chinese character recognition
for kicks and giggles, now did it? As of now, China Mobile has yet to make a peep on the rumblings, but we've only got a few months before finding out either way.
