Official announcement from China Unicom just reached us:

“China Unicom and Apple have reached a multiyear agreement for China Unicom to sell iPhone in China. The initial launch is expected to be in the fourth calendar quarter of 2009. We will share more details at that time.”

The announcement was given by China Unicom in its “Q1/Q2 2009 Financial Result Press Conference”. According to a friend onsite, we can also confirm that it’s 3-years exclusive contract and  the iPhone model to be sold in Q4 will be iPhone 3GS, but still not clear if it will be Wifi enabled or not. So stay tuned, we will update here once we get more details.

Update: According to Chang Xiaobin, chairman of China Unicom, the iPhone coming to China in Q4 will be Wifi Disabled! 🙁
