China Mobile has re-launched its tuned 88-series service packages recently, all of the sub 5 packages under which has newly added a 10hr-Wifi-service(Source:sina(chinese)). It also says the WLAN service is now only availabe in Beijing and Shanghai.
I never get the chance to try it out, but certainly it’s a good sign for the iPhone officially coming into China, WITHOUT the wifi-cut. Personally I wouldn’t buy the phone if there’s no wifi support.
Let’s wait and see what will happen next.
P.S. I’ll update if I could try the CMCC wifi service later.
Update(Dec.30,2008): China Mobile has expanded its WiFi service, from GoTone only, to M-zone ,Easyyown and GoTone now, as Sina reports today. Really, it’s kinda sign that China may remove the restriction of no Wifi module in the mobile device.
Update(Dec.31,2008): GoTone only,again.
1. on the way of to-be-a-father
Couple of weeks later, I’m gonna be a father! My baby would come to this world! I’m really really looking forward to it. But before that, I have lots of things to learn and prepare.. You’ll have an idea of it if you are already a father or mother.
2. new driver with the new car
Yes, one of the things I’ve done for my coming daughter. I spent 25 days(from the day I started to drive to the day I passed the test) to get the driving license, 15 days to order the Lova and then I’m on the road in my car. I have to drive as more as possbile to accumulate driving and improve the skills so make sure I’m fully prepared whenever necessary.
Well, the two cents above make me a little bit out of my spare time. And there’s also some changes in my job, which makes me busier than before. So, all in all, I may not be able to keep updating this blog as often as before. My readers, sorry.
Just for fun

That’s what the picture says in English. Picture are from here(Chinese). What a creative guy!
4. Contacts search goes much much faster.
Well, that’s all that i’ve found about the new iphone 2.1 OS so far. Perhaps later I’ll get more. If so, i’ll update it here.
One more thing, at this moment, there’s no jailbreak solution out for the new OS. That is to say, you do the upgrade, you lose all of those unofficial 3rd party applications installed either by Installer or Cydia. So you decide to update or not.
Update(Sep.17,2008): Significantly better battery life confirmed.
Now I’m on the latest iphone 2.0.1 firmware(Thanks goes to Winpwn 2.0.4). And everything works flawlessly. Compared with 2.0, the biggest improvements i’ve found is the app launch speed is much faster. You may get more other 2.0.1 improvements here.
One more advantage of going to 2.0.1 is having both Installer 4.0 beta(youtube video) and Cydia on the phone. I don have any high expectation on it, just can’t wait to try it out myself
Even if not all of the old iphone 1.1.x apps has been ported to 2.0.x, still lots of apps there waiting for you. I myself have’t got enough time to try them yet, you may get it from the screenshot above. For now i installed iCosta PinYin, BossPrefs, Chinese Carrier bundles and two games.
One more thing, with Winpwn 2.0.4, i’ve resized the space for the apps from the default 300M to 700M, which means, i can install the apps as many as I want

just learned from Xianguo Iphone(in Chinese) that the GFW-long-blocked Wikipedia has come to live. I tried the English and Chinese version and both work well.
The reason? I’m not sure, perhaps it’s because the around-the-corner Olympic Games.
Even though the access to the internet has proved still not completely open and free, those very knowledge intensive websites like wikipedia have got the chances of being unblocked by the government, at least during Games.
and here’s the screenshot.
btw,this post is created by WordPress App for iPhone, and modified later by WP’s built-in editor.
iPhone 2 DOES has some new features which is really attractive to me, like native support to Chinese in Email and IME, like GPS, etc. Exchange support, not so much. I have no plan to use personal my iPhone to check those company emails.
Even though so far the 3-rd party apps cannot be allowed to be running, I’m pretty sure it’s a matter of time. I do have a strong belief on those very talented guys in the community like the iPhone Dev Team, even I have completely no idea of who they are, where they come from and how they look like.
Perhaps, I should start thinking of reselling my iPhone, just like everyone else. The best target is someone here in Beijing,China.
Actually my iPhone works pretty good in every functionality. No physical damage at all. If you decide to get it you will also have my full support in my convenient time. Software only,btw.
