    Since Unicom, has been awarded the Apple I-Phone and Apple I-Pad contract.
    Will they be selling Apple Apps. on their newly developed application website?
    We see this as a huge market for them, with their current subscriber base, this could be quite profitble for them..possilbe overtaking the number 1 position in the mobile market in China.. Apps equal more trend buyers of the I-phone and I-pad…
