They will sell UP TO 20% of 10%.
Let's say 10% of people there can afford smart phone with data plan, that work out to about 76M. Apple can sell about 20% of 76M, that is about 15.2M. We don't know how many of them already have iPhone and I doubt they reach half of that.
That 20% come from my assumption of Apple market share.

Definitely, billionaires make up the highest percentage of people on the planet. The people in China that can't afford iPhones are actually a very small minority.

Dont think billionaires care about what smartphones are popular, also they have money and ways to buy it from 1st release day and dont need to wait China Mobile to release it.

False hope. CEO get off of your butt and go live in the R+D Department until we tell you that you can leave!
