It looks like China Unicom may have scored a coup against bigger rival China Mobile. They just might be the carrier in China that will launch the HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) and the iPhone. Take that China Mobile!
There isn't an official confirmation but China Unicom has posted specs of the G1 and listed it as a supported handset. Getting on a Chinese carrier is almost guaranteeing Android a large slice of the worldwide mobile handset marketshare. What with billions of potential customers at their bidding, millions of new Android users aren't out of the question.
We'll wait for word confirming the G1 to China Unicom but it's looking pretty good.
