After receiving certification from China's State Radio Management earlier in November, Apple have now finally been awarded a "network access license" that lets them enable the iPhone 5 on China Telecom, the country's third-largest wireless carrier.

 

China's second-largest wireless carrier, China Unicom, might not even receive the iPhone 5 at launch - meaning that multiple carriers might not be enjoying the iPhone 5 love. This might hurt the iPhone 5s market share in the country - where Android is such a dominant force enjoying over 90% of the smartphone market share.
