China Mobile says it is not close to carrying the Apple iPhone 5
China Unicom, a rival carrier, announced that it had received 100,000 orders for the the Apple iPhone 5 on the first weekend that it became available. Pre-orders have been taken for China Telecom with 5,000 units ordered on the first day they were taken. Last week, it was announced that shipments of the Apple iPhone 5 would go out to China starting on December 14th.
Li says he looks forward to working out a deal with Apple. An agreement with China Mobile should quickly double the number of Apple's installed base of iPhone units in the country,

Apple used its large user base to impose its will on US carriers, but in China things are very different. The Chinese do not need iPhone 5.

The wealthier families are still crazed about it, but China as a whole are not as appealed to Apple products as USA
