China Unicom, which is the exclusive authorized carrier for the Apple iPhone in China, will also sell a fake iPhone called the uPhone, which runs Android. The uPhone is probably the answer to rival China Mobile's iPhone clone, the oPhone. That's the market for touch phones in China: Two fake iPhones battle it out for supremacy on the two major carriers while the real iPhone languishes in obscurity and irrelevance. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Apple and China are simply incompatible.
