Not for the first time, Sohu is trying to lead the web technology ahead of Chinese portals. (Sohu actually is the first one launched Open Platform in China, partnered with Netvibes). Together with China Unicom, tomorrow iPhone Developer Salon will be held in Sohu Building, Beijing. iPhone Developer Association is said to be launched too.

Let’s take a quick look at who are attending:

  • China Unicom Officials
  • VP of Sohu (who is in charge of several products such as Bai (our coverage), Sohu’s iPhone application for its SNS)
  • Manager of Sohu Mobile
  • (iPhone application development company, apps list)
  • iBokan (iPhone application development company, apps: Galaxy ImpactCute Math, Eye Test)

Any partnership involved especially among these three parties: China Unicom, Sohu and NetDragon (our coverage)? And where is Chinese iPhone app store?
