China Mobile Starts Taking iPhone 6 Preorders

Although Apple didn't announce its next generation iPhone yet, but that didn't stop China Mobile from taking iPhone 6 preorders and putting it up for sale. According to a new report from China Daily, the carrier, which is the largest in the world, has opened up preorders for the so-called iPhone 6.

Since early yesterday, CM subscribers in Beijing have been able to reserve both a 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhone model. Details, such as prices and storage capacities are unknown, and customers are not being offered images of the handsets or release dates.

China Mobile has in the past offered online reservations for unannounced Apple devices—last year it pulled a similar stunt with the iPhone 5s. It’s essentially a marketing campaign that helps drum up interest in both the carrier and major product launches.

Early today China Daily is reporting that more than 33,000 preorders had been placed. Again, the reservations are limited to Beijing customers, and they are not being given shipping dates or potential launch dates.
