Duel, 20 Mar 2014"Of the 27% of Chinese phones that cost >$500, 80% are Apples" Credible source?
"The carrier has sold roughly 1.34 LTE-enabled smartphones, most of which were iPhones"
Perhaps a whole 1 iPhone!
this heading is misleading.....most of the 'fruit' were sold as stated doesnt mean dat every item sold belongs to same type of 'fruit'... and the fruit fans are already getting emotional on it...grow up..live with it.. its no more a fruit era... its time to play with real things...
... Just how many 'gazillion squillion' people are there in China these days?
Answers on a postcard please!
J2Evil, 20 Mar 2014The first part of your comment actually answered your question. Apple HATERS. People who hate ... moreWhat I mean is they claim Apple is "shit" and that they will neverhave Apple products yet they spend their day on Apple related posts trying to ruin the day for others . If you really claim to hate or dislike something why keep on your mouth all day long why keep it relevant ? Is this all because of outrageous jealousy and self confidence problems ? And one other thing I hate most is ok you insult the band but why the user ? What did the use do to you. He/she just bought something that wants to enjoy and you call him names for it. This totally shows pure jealousy and how people try to feel secure by insulting others.

Apple HATERS. People who hate things will always bash those things and always be there when something negative happens to it.
You don't like Apple HATERS, but you are right there on blogs when they are hating are you not? It's a circle. No way to avoid it.

APL, 20 Mar 2014Is this good news or is this bad news?Neither.
For China Mobile, it all depends on how quickly they can roll out their 4G network. Their loss just reflects the higher Capex from network upgrades and lower rev from some services and handset subsidies. It may be more of a negative for China Mobile, though, because it just shows that China Unicom and China Telecom are out competing them.
For Apple, it's neither good or bad because their device is only available on the 4G network, which is only available in 16 cities. China Mobile expects 300 cities by year end. The big metric of success for Apple will be closer to the end of the year when their new model is released and the 4G network is rolled out more widely.

Why do Apple haters become so happy when there is a bad news related Apple ? They look like they are going to cry from happiness and March the internet to celebrate. It's that because they don't have a life and enjoy bashing something or someone so they can feel better about their lives ? Can someone logical not blinded by jealousy give his/her explanation ?
npkj, 20 Mar 2014Weldone Chinese people, now I think they have a mindYes, its nice to see that millions chinese people also want iPhones.
One million with one carrier in one month, add other carriers to china sales and you get nice monthly extra sales from China.
