However it is very popular in China already as they can be purchased unlocked

Apple branding means already 30 million iphones being used with 2G and wifi only as they are not compatible with any 3G or 4G network

The above deal brings an iPhone 5S & 5C with 4G capability

I imagine that if a person puts up with a 2G iPhone then 4G comes along....

just a guess new sale records will be set in China
17/01/14 Apple will be headline news

China mobile was losing smartphone customers because of their bootleg version of 3G. Apple did not want to make a model that was specific to that band. That's why the announcements of 4G on china mobile and the iPhone came at the same time. If Apple was so desperate they would have kow-towed like other manufacturers and made it with chips for that version of 3G, that was really just dictated by the Chinese govt and not better in any way.

Apple definitely would've had to reduce their profit margin in order to reach a deal with China Mobile. The Chinese aren't going to get bullied around by Apple like all the other Carriers do...

My say is.. a phone becamed great if it meets the user's needs. Having said that.. not all users have the same wishlist. Am a fanboy smith is a fanboy your a fanboy but it does'nt make sense to bicker each other. You became a fanboy of nokia for reasons you only know and understand so are us. So smith and raker stop it. Show some respect. Technology is ever changing.. one rises one falls.

So many nokia fan boys lately. People still haven't realised there only phones yet? Seriously no one cares about your opinion, except the companies who love you for spending all your money. How does it feel to be manipulated by a company? Seriously just think about it... A few months down the line they'll release a new updated version that you'll want, you get excited buy it and then same thing happens months thereafter. Pathetic.

Wonder how much Apple had to reduce it's profit margins in order to reach a deal.
