China Mobile’s Four Million iPhone Users Still Waiting for Official Apple Deal

During a Thursday news conference, China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou said the company has reached some sort of consensus with Apple on the type of iPhone to be offered by the mobile services provider–a 4G TD-LTE version of the device.

Which is both good news and bad for China Mobile.

Good news in that it appears the carrier will finally get the iPhone, bad news in that the version it’s evidently getting won’t run on its current 3G TD-SCDMA network, but on its next generation 4G TD-LTE network, which won’t be fully lit up for 12-18 months. But when it is fully operational, and the carrier is able to sell an iPhone compatible with it, expect a surge in sales of the handset.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
