iPhone Gets MIIT Approval, No Wi-Fi

Mydrivers, 8/17/09

China's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center, part of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), has released an image of the China Unicom (NYSE: CHU; 0762.HK; 600050.SH) edition of the iPhone, indicating that the smartphone has passed the ministry's equipment application process and will soon be awarded a network access permit. The handset, model number A1324, is a variation on the iPhone 3G and operates on WCDMA 3G networks, but lacks Wi-Fi capability. It will reach the market in September 2009. Other reports from the industry say Unicom will also submit model A1325, based on the iPhone 3GS, for an access permit that will include Wi-Fi, but so far Unicom has yet to confirm the rumors.
