Apple has China in its line of vision. Chinese regulator grants iPhone license to Apple for running the device on China Mobile network. Apple is ready to clinch the deal for 700 million subscribers of China Mobile. The rest as they say will be history.
The CEO of Apple, Tim Cook was the person on whom all eyes were fixed. He had taken Apple Incorporated into some pretty serious negotiations with China Mobile, the largest mobile provider on a global scale. The China Mobile has over 700 million individuals who had subscriptions to this facility provider. China has over 1 billion smartphone users. It was a lucrative economic market for Apple indeed.
And although the deal has not exactly been sealed, things are close to a denouement of sorts. According to reports, a Chinese regulator has given the green light to Apple’s novel iPhones to run on the China Mobile platform. Some of the new iPhones ran on the specified TD-LTE bands for the 4G network.
While the deal is still proceeding in its usual direction of resolution, there are hints that things have picked up pace. However, a query that has been haunting everyone is whether Apple will create an iPhone that supports a bandwidth of 41. The reason is that a slot for a device that runs on this bandwidth is required by China Mobile for the year 2014. By the way, band 41 is also employed by Sprint.
Currently, the limited license obtained by Apple proves that soon a compact may be signed between it and China Mobile. Apple is thus dead set on conquering the Chinese market. But proper permission must be sought before the mission as they say.
