China Mobile Racks Up 10 Million iPhone Users While Waiting for Apple Deal
China Mobile’s lack of a deal with Apple hasn’t stopped the carrier from accumulating quite a few iPhones on its network — millions, actually, according to China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou.
“The total number of iPhones in China Mobile’s network has reached 10 million — and we didn’t pay any subsidies,” Jianzhou told Reuters, adding that the company is still working to ink an iPhone deal with Apple, hopefully one that will involve an LTE-compatible version of the device.
“We have not yet got agreement with Apple,” Wang said. “Apple promised to provide, when they develop the iPhone for LTE, that it will include TD-LTE. We are discussing the details.”
