China's biggest smartphone maker is officially moving into the laptop market, with a new line of PCs set to debut early next year.
The Chinese smartphone giant will release the Mi 4c just two days ahead of the iPhone 6S, as it strengthens its grip on its home market by announcing it will launch a virtual carrier service.
Online reservations for the new iPhones have shot past 100,000 at China's second-largest mobile carrier, reports Bloomberg.
With Chinese financial institutions playing hardball, Apple's new payments system may not make its way to the country anytime soon, according to MarketWatch.
New Web and email address options exploded this year with 469 new top-level domain names. Next year, Google, Amazon and 10 others will bid for rights to oversee .app.
If accurate, that's double the number of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus units sold during launch weekend in the US and elsewhere.
One e-commerce site allegedly accounts for 2.3 million reservations alone, according to Chinese media.
The reservations are reportedly spread across China's three major mobile carriers and various retailers, with the 64GB iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus models proving the most popular.
Chinese authorities issue license to Apple allowing the latest version of its device to be used on the country's wireless network in the world's largest smartphone market.
With the new iPhones not yet available in China, individuals are scooping them up through other sources and then reselling them at high prices, says Bloomberg.
