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.
China Mobile shifted to a high speed 4G network and signed a pact with Apple. Now, Apple’s iPhone will be disseminated among the 700 million users of China Mobile’s services. Although things are still a bit implicit, the news is out that starting this Thursday, the pre-orders will begin from Shanghai.
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 deal between 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.
