Buying Data only SIM card for use in HK and Shenzhen

I will be arriving in Shenzhen over the weekend but will initially arrive at HK airport. I will need a data only SIM card for my 16 day stay. Is the best option to buy a China Unicom SIM at HK airport from one of the 7-11 stores? I am looking for a SIM that will work in both HK and China.

Something like in the following link:

Alternatively if there is an option to get a similar SIM delivered to my Shenzhen hotel on arrival that would be great too.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

virtually all prepaid SIMs work across the border, but costly. Convenience stores may or may not carry the specific SIM you want.

There are also 1010 and China Mobile stores which carry only some of the cards they have on their website. However you can order online for China Mobile and pick up at the store.
