China Mobile Can Delay iPhone Launch Until November

We have already told you that Apple has reportedly started the shipment of iPhone 5C to China Mobile. The troublesome iPhone deal between China Mobile and Apple has said to reach an agreement to launch only low-cost iPhone model. Apple CEO Tim Cook and China Mobile Chairman Xi Guohua has met many times to finalize the deal, but result comes out for only one iPhone model. And that is the low-cost plastic iPhone 5C. Though an official agreement has yet to be announced

But a recent report from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via AppleInsider) states that China Mobile may postpone the launch of iPhone 5C due to some network issue. Though other 2 carriers that Apple take on board to launch new iPhone models in China, China Unicom and China Telecom, will launch the device shortly after the September 10th US launch. In fact, the pre-order detail of iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C by China Telecom is already leaked online. Pre-orders will open in China soon after the US launch. But China Mobile may delay the iPhone launch for its 70 million subscribers as late as November. What is the reason behind this delay?

The world's largest telecom network, China Mobile, has not yet finished rolling out its TDD-LTE network. This task will take some time to complete. It is expected to be completed in 2 months time. Also, most of the previous speculations hint that new iPhone versions compatible with common FDD-LTE networks would come first and TDD-LTE network compatible versions would come after that. But Kuo said that "he expects Apple to announce both FDD-LTE and TDD-LTE versions of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C at an event scheduled for September 10." And China Mobile's 4G network is not yet ready. It will take 2 more months to ready its 4G network. Hence China Mobile could delay new iPhone launch till November.
