China Mobile to Launch iPhone 5S and 5C on 18th December

It looks like that the world's biggest mobile carrier, China Mobile, is going to launch Apple's new iPhones on December 18th. But it is not confirmed yet by both China Mobile and Apple. China Mobile said that it is planning "to introduce a new brand" on December 18th. And it is widely expected that China Mobile is looking to launch iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C in the world's biggest smartphone market on said date.

WSJ reports, "The launch is expected during the company’s 4G global partners conference in Guangzhou, according to China Mobile’s website. An executive at the world’s largest mobile operator has said it is ready to start fourth-generation mobile services, though China has yet to issue 4G licenses. In September, China’s Telecom Equipment Certification Center gave Apple the final license necessary for the iPhone to run on China Mobile’s network."

Apple China Mobile iPhone deal has been a long time coming. It is always important for Apple to launch its new iPhones in the world's biggest smartphone market. And China Mobile is always being the best choice. It is the world's biggest mobile carrier. And it is reported to have 2 million iPhone users in advance. These are those users, who purchases iPhones from other carriers at full price and now using China Mobile SIMs in these iPhones. 

Hong Kong-based Mizuho Securities analyst Marvin Lo said, “A deal with China Mobile would give Apple a big boost in the China market as the largest local carrier has the most wealthy subscriber base. I estimate that among China Mobile’s more than 700 million mobile subscribers, at least 10% or 70 million wealthier ones would be potential customers for iPhones.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
