Chinese iPhone Has No Wi-Fi

Glenn Fleishman on the Wi-Fi-less iPhones now on sale, officially, in China:

There is some suspicion that WAPI’s authentication aspect, in which a login would be required to join a network securely, was partly desirable to track users, too. This would eliminate the “problem” of untrackable connections to Wi-Fi hotspots, coupled with security that would prevent local interception.
