That might be your feeling about Asus or Android. But as a tech news site, Its Phonearena's job to keep people posted about things like these... Not coming for a fight with any ifans or android fans, Just an opinion dats all :)

Its already ridiculous how many iPhones they sell haha but this would really be insane. Good luck Apple, whoever closes that deal is sure to be one happy camper.

They would only have to work 8 months to afford one. Yea, it would add a few million subscribers to iOS, but its not like even 1/4th of the carrier's people could afford such a thing. Apple only pays their workers $60 a month in china.. Its going to take them a long long time to be able to afford the phone that they build.

why was this comment moderated? it follows the rules just fine. It was referencing an ACTUAL case where that CHINEESE kid sold one of his kidneys on the black market to buy an ipad. I would say that is very relevant to a story about the iphone becoming availible in china.

correct... crapple wont give any s**t to good practices and human rights in terms of outsourced production of their products... more commodoties mean more revenue for the devils fruit and their good throwing out the production line in countries who have a lot of surplus labor.. $60 for a month for a worker ... 1000000% rate of exploitation... shame shame ..
