China Mobile to Start Accepting Apple's New iPhone Orders This Week
Apple Incorporated signed a deal with the world’s largest mobile carrier, China Mobile last week regarding the provision of iPhones for its audience. It is to start welcoming orders starting from this week.
As its website so volubly mentions, iPhone 5S and other smart phones from Samsung and Sony will get showcased and bought. While the 4G services will take a little longer to become operational, things are working as per plan. The “4G is here!” tagline became quite a meme among the enthusiastic crowd of mobile maniacs.
The dealbetween China Mobile and Apple had long been in the pipeline. And today it is a living reality. The Chinese market is a volatile source of excess consumers for Apple. Both Apple and China Mobile will rake in the beneficial effects of this mutual bond. The classy iPhone 5S along with the high speed 4G network are a lethal combination as far as desirable products and services are concerned.
Meanwhile, 4G technology is to arrive in six major urban centers of Mainland China. The stage is set for cooperation between East and West on a techno-communicative level. And Apple which had previously had a home turf advantage in Europe and America is now ready to penetrate the Sino-sphere.
Although Europe remained challenging during the quarter, the company has built a strong pipeline of orders on a number of recent contract wins, such as Everything Everywhere and Vodafone, which should bolster sales towards the latter half of the year. A second-half revenue boost is expected in the U.S and China as well, with carriers such as Sprint, China Mobile and China Telecom expected to substant ... Source: Forbes Real Time

Fifteen months ago, when Apple investors gave up on the stock, I bought it. Happily, I still own it. I don't think the stock is grossly undervalued anymore, the way it was when it was at $56 ($391 in the old split). On the contrary, I think it's overvalued. But I also think that the iPhone 6 upgrade cycle is going to be monstrous and that, as launch day approaches, the excitement is going to be so great that the stock will surge even higher. I still have long-term concerns a ... Source: The Business Insider

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.
