Apple is letting China Telecom gets the CDMA iPhone before the year ends, as the firm plans to expand their subscriber base.

China Telecom is rumored to carry the iPhone by the end of 2011 based on a late night leak on Tuesday. Due to the existence of the CDMA models, the firm has all the technology and just needs to complete a deal.

China Telecom isn’t considered Apple’s ultimate target, but the company would be playing an important role for the distribution of the model since it is dubbed as the second largest carrier in China. This means it would be larger than the current iPhone provider, China Unicom, and significantly expands Apple’s subscriber base. Apple is negotiating with China Mobile as well and could have all the top 3 largest carriers under their company by the end of 2011.

Outside Apple's new Xidan Joy City retail store in Beijing, over a thousand fans lined up Saturday to purchase the iPhone 4. Unfortunately, supplies can't meet the consumer's demand.

China Unicom struggles to fulfill over 200,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders it received last week, according to MarketWatch. This year’s iPhone 4 release in China is a dramatic turnaround, compared to last year’s muted iPhone launch. China Unicom has sold 60,000 units on the first day after receiving a hefty number of pre-orders. More than 40,000 of sales went to individual customers and 10,000 to direct distribution bulk orders. However, Apple promised more shipments in the days to come. According to Apple spokeswoman, Carolyn Wu:

“More iPhones will be available soon and customers should check back with their local store or online for updates on availability.”

After issues that roams around the smartphone arena, there's nothing that can stop Apple in releasing iPhone 4. Now, they are even expanding their market in China. There's Wifi enabled iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and iPad. What's next?

Just weeks after the Chinese market began selling the WiFi enabled iPhone 3GS, Apple will launch the iPhone 4 in the country on the first part of September. China Unicom, the company’s carrier partner, acknowledged that the latest iPhone device will ship in the market, then followed by the iPad release. Though no time frame was given, the two products won’t be launched on the same day. China Unicom began selling the WiFi enabled iPhone 3GS on the first part of August, after the model was approved last month. In an effort to promote its own WAPI wireless networking standard, China banned the sale of WiFi products but relented later. Apple experienced a 144 percent growth in China after its most recent quarterly earnings conference call. It’s no wonder why the company opened its second retail store in the country with plans or putting up 25 more.
