iPhone 5 Clears First Regulatory Hurdle In China

A Chinese website has reported that Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone 5 has cleared its first regulatory hurdle in China – receiving a certification which is mandatory regulatory before it can officially be available in mainland China.

The iPhone 5 is reportedly already available in mainland China on the grey market, but at a huge price premium.

Although further regulatory and carrier-generated hurdles likely remain, it looks like everything could be resolved within 3 to 6 months if this report is true.

China obviously could be a huge market for the iPhone 5.
