Will Apple crash the Chinese market this Friday?


When an executive with Chinese mobile carrier China Unicom confirmed that the Apple iPhone would be discussed in a Friday briefing, the entire universe of Apple (AAPL) watchers said this meant that the two companies would announce the launch of an iPhone in China on August 28. MacWorld UK had already spotted an Apple iPhone product specs page on China Unicom's website.

The confirmation that the iPhone would be discussed takes what had been a rumor and makes it an inevitability, if not for this Friday then for the very near future.
