Unwired View reports on news from China Business Times [Google translation] that China Unicom is internally targeting a launch date of October 15th for the iPhone. Pricing will reportedly be set at 1,999 yuan (US$293) for the 8 GB model and 2,999 yuan (US$439) for the 16 GB model. Both models will require two-year contracts with pricing beginning at 186 yuan (US$27) per month. China Unicom announced in late August that it had struck a three-year deal to bring the iPhone to China. At the time, the company said only that it was looking to launch the iPhone by the end of 2009. Article Link: iPhone to Launch in China on October 15th?
