China Mobile Beijing about to take pre-orders for the Apple iPhone 5s?
While China Mobile has so far denied it has a deal with Apple to sell the iPhone, earlier reports had the phone launching for the carrier on December 18th. Apple had previously been unable to sell its iconic smartphone to China Mobile's750 million subscribers because the device was not compatible with the operators TD-SCDMA pipeline. Now that the carrier is moving to a 4G LTE network, there have been leaked posters and other indications that Apple and China Mobile had reached an agreement for Apple to sell the iPhone via China Mobile.
Earlier this month, a Suzhou-based subsidiary of China Mobile posted a reservations page for China Mobile customers interested in buying the Apple iPhone 5s and the Apple iPhone 5c, but it was subsequently taken down. The whole back and forth has to be getting China Mobile subscribers frustrated, along with Apple executives. China Mobile is an important carrier for Apple to snag. If only 1% of its customers buy an iPhone, that equals 7.5 million units sold.
