Along with this sad news, an insider has confirmed some spec of the Chinese version iPhone. First of all, like all the other device, this special designed iPhone doesn't have WiFi functionality; come with Os version 3.1(could be 3.1beta), and baseband version 5.10. Pricing is still non-settled, but there will be 3G and 3GS, both with a 2-year contract commitment. with 3G iPhone, the iphone itself will be sold 2500~2700RMB, while with 3GS will cost 4000+ RMB. No detail on monthly fee yet.
