China Unicom's iPhone sales have been accelerating, and the company reported that it has sold 300,000 units as of December 27th or 28th. This would mean that sales have been accelerating since the device's launch in that country, the largest cell phone market in the world, when the iPhone sold but 5,000 units in its debut weekend.
The news comes via the Chinese language site QQ.com (Google translation), which also reported that China Unicom expects iPhone unit sales to reach 30 million. On December 10th, the company had said it expected to sell 10 million iPhones.
To that end, China Unicom plans on offering a significant, but unspecified promotion in coming weeks under the name "Unicom iPhone club."
