They don’t get any better than this!  It looks like the biggest mobile market in the world will be served the iPhone by China Unicom – unless there is something very shady going on.  China Unicom’s site today has the iPhone as one of the phone options available to its customers.  There is also a Flash animation on the top with the iPhone which seems to indicate that this isn’t just some random mistake or hacking (or if it is, it is a pretty well thought out one).

The only other explanation we can think of is that China Unicom is just advertising which products are compatible with its new 3G service? 

See translation below.

It looks like they are also carrying the G1 Android phone.  Hope Stevo doesn’t drop the hammer on them for their premature announcementEn Anglais:

 Note that it supports WCDMA (don’t get your hopes up Verizon customers, not CDMA) and will be released in July of last year.(!!)
