Apple announced that iPhone 4S will be available in China on Friday,
January 13. Available through China's top two mobile carriers China
Mobile and China Unicom, the latter will be offering exclusively for
free with a multi-year service contract costing as little as 286 yuan
($45) a month. Adding to the strain on China Unicom's data network,
which is reportedly already struggling to meet demand, the phones will
include bandwidth-hog Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you
get things done just by asking.

The announcement follows the successful release of MEIZU's latest MX
smartphone which attracted large lines at its stores across China on
Janury 1st. To avoid the chaotic scene of the MEIZU M9 launch last

contacted to go to their local store and pick the unit up. Despite
this, long lines with hundreds of customers were formed outside each
store. In Hong Kong, the queue had more than a thousand people at its

But can MEIZU keep the allure of its phone in the face of Apple and
its AI Siri? Apple’s CEO Tim Cook was not kidding when he said
"Customer response to our products in China has been off the charts."
China is now Apple's second largest market after the US, while it
sales volume overtook Lenovo, the world’s third-biggest PC maker.
