Apple has reportedly gotten a long-awaited permit to begin selling the iPhone in China.
According to M.I.C. Gadget, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) on Monday issued the needed paperwork for the iPhone. As a result, China Unicom hopes of have the iPhone 4S on sale before year’s end, MICGadget reported.
“We will start sales once we get the certificate from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology,” China Unicom exec Yu Yingtao told Sina.com last month. “It’s not up to us. We’ve already done all of our preparations; we’re just waiting on the permit.”
