    Wireless carrier China Unicom (CHU) reports its 2010 profits dropped by more than half, despite rapid sales growth. Its earnings were offset by subsidies it paid on handsets to attract users, and network maintenance costs. Analysts project it will report net income of $703M for the year.

    Skype's (EBAY -0.1%) Chinese partner TOM Group says its joint calling service is perfectly legal, even as the government cracks down on illicit web phone service providers. Certainly, it would hurt Skype's future IPO to be barred from the world's largest internet market. Right now, it's "business as usual," claims TOM.

    China Unicom's (CHU) iPhone (AAPL) sales may get a boost in China if it's successful in introducing iPhones with Wi-Fi capability. The iPhone went on sale in China in October, but government regulators demanded the Wi-Fi be disabled, frustrating many consumers.
