Taiwan clears iPhone 4S to go on sale before end of year

Taiwan NCC approves iPhone 4S for sale

Taiwan should get the iPhone 4S before the end of the year after the island's National Communications Commission approved the device for sale. Clearing the technical hurdle should see the Apple device on sale by either late November or early December. Chungwa Telecom, FarEasTone, and Taiwan Mobile should all be in line to carry the updated iPhone.

Hong Kong is already due to get the phone on November 11. Apple hasn't detailed which countries are getting the iPhone 4S beyond the known 44, but it has promised more than 70 by the end of 2011. Mainland China is believed to be one of them.

The rollout is Apple's fastest for a new iPhone and is partly intended to curb the growth of Android. Taiwan is important for the strategy as it's the home of HTC, Acer, and ASUS, the first two of which depend heavily on Android.
