China regulator approves Apple’s iPhone 6/Plus for sale in China

“Apple Inc’s iPhone 6 can now be sold in China, after the firm received a license for the device to be used on China’s wireless networks,” Paul Carsten reports for Reuters.

    1. Chinese mafia doesn’t sell phones just in China. Anyway I’m sure the China MIIT gave these scalpers time enough to get back some investment back and some profit. There’s corruption in EVERY country; it’s the level that changes.
