A new job posting by Apple suggests that the company may be closer to bringing the iPhone to China.
The company is seeking an iPhone Quality Assurance Engineer in Beijing. China is, of course, a massive market for mobile phones, and Apple would love to find their way into that market.
Rumors have been on an off about Apple getting the iPhone into the country for almost as long as the iPhone has been publicly announced, but there has never been any sort of official announcement. There has been a lot of talk about the iPhone having to be “scaled-down” to get into the country — maybe even having to drop its wi-fi or 3G capabilities. None of that, however, has been confirmed.
I doubt Apple is likely to make such concessions, but you never know.
What do you think?
