China Unicom has already recorded over 200,000 reservations for the iPhone 5, the carrier has announced. It hit the mark in just two days, doubling the 100,000 achieved during the first day. Unicom is also saying
that it will offer a full subsidy for the handset, but with a minimum deposit of 5,899 RMB (about $947 US) for a 16GB model. That money will be refunded on a monthly basis, with the exact credit depending on the length of the contract. 32 and 64GB models are also available, but with higher deposits.
