In a stroke of good-timing, the iPhone 4S goes on sale in China a mere 10 days before the widely-celebrated Chinese New Year. Still unanswered about the launch: Will China Unicom (CHU -1.1%) hold on to its exclusive status as the only AAPL carrier or will rivals China Mobile (CHL -0.6%) and China Telecom (CHA -1.5%) gain access? Right now, CHL is the market share leader with 70%, compared to 20% for CHU and 10% for CHA.
