Contract iPhone 5c popular in China




iPhone 5c

In the first days after the presentation of iPhone 5c Chinese analysts were treated to a novelty extremely wary . Once they were convinced that the price of the “budget” smartphone will be $ 300-350, Apple has set the minimum cost of the gadget at the level of 549 dollars. At the time, experts do not take into account sales contract iPhone mobile operators. And a very good reason.

According to news agency Bloomberg, the first three days of the start of pre-orders for iPhone 5c second largest Chinese operator China Unicom has issued more than 100,000 orders for this device and its top model 5s. Experts predict sales of iPhone 5c for the first weekend at the level of one million units. It is likely that they underestimate the potential of plastic novelties .

In addition, another operator China Telecom Middle Kingdom can also significantly improve the statistics on the number of implemented Apple iPhone 5c. The company offers its customers a smart phone for free if they agree to sign a two-year contract for the provision of cellular services. The minimum data plan will cost the operator $ 53.

However, the most important potential partner Apple is still on the sidelines. China Mobile has not entered into an agreement to sell the iPhone with the Corporation of Cupertino , although the relevant rumors circulated for a long time. Currently nearly 50 million customers of the largest operator in the world use iOS-devices.

According to the Asian analysts, China Unicom and China Telecom expose iPhone price in the most rational and strive with optimal price and quality of services. China Mobile was used to dictate their terms to the market and want to squeeze the maximum out of Apple, the more it will never operate at a loss. Therefore, representatives of both companies during the year periodic differences, which came to settle himself, Tim Cook .

It turns out that the contract system sales of smartphones still iPhone 5c gave a chance for further development. This once again confirms the professionalism of the top management of Apple, which used to look at a few steps forward. I think the leaders were well aware that over 733 dollars (that is how much is sim-free iPhone 5c to 16 GB with China Telecom) smartphone in China will not buy.

Apple has not opened pre-order the iPhone 5s, as it did before, but made an exception for Chinese buyers. They will be able to place your order one day before the official sales – on Thursday, September 19.
