Apple is Preparing to Ship Low-cost iPhone to China Mobile

Apple is Preparing to Ship Low-cost iPhone to China Mobile

Apple is making preparations to ship its low-cost iPhones to China Mobile in a bid to introduce them into the Sino-market. This news was leaked and won’t even be aired at the September 10th event when some novel iPhones will be unveiled. China Mobile already has well over 63% of the more than 1 billion Chinese wireless accounts. A huge number of subscribers. We already told you that Apple will likely to sale its new iPhones via China Mobile. Pricing issues leaves high-end iPhone 5S for the carrier, but it will surely take low-cost plastic iPhone 5C on board.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday, "Apple has asked Foxconn, its contract manufacturing partner, to add China Mobile to the list of carriers slated to receive a new low-cost iPhone, one of these people said. It isn't clear if the two sides have signed an official agreement or when the phones would be delivered."

A partnership between Apple and China Mobile could prove to be the right stimulus for the Cupertino-based company. Apple is all set to expand its network in the Chinese market. At present, Apple is facing some tough competition from Samsung, its major rival in the field. 

The two companies had been attending parleys for some time now. Their negotiations had proven inconclusive until now when the deal seems to have been sealed. After the United States and Europe, China is the main market for Apple. There is a slight mismatch of systems which may cause a bit of friction between Apple’s iPhones and the Chinese code which is termed TD-SCDMA. 

Apple’s iPhone on a shoestring budget costs between $400 and $500. China is the world leader in technology and infrastructure. Just like India leads in entertainment and information technology, China too has its fields of endeavor. It is indeed a force to be reckoned with. Apple would be lucky to gain entry into the Chinese sector. Apple has already taken China's 2nd and 3rd largest wireless operators on board to sale new iPhone line-up. China Unicom and China Telecom are the two network carriers that will offer both iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C for sale in China shortly after US launch event. China's #1 carrier, China Mobile will though only offer low-end iPhone 5C via its network.
