Apple and China Mobile Partnership Terms can be Changed by the Weak iPhone 5C Sales

Apple and China Mobile Partnership Terms can be Changed by the Weak iPhone 5C Sa
The China Mobile customers are more interested in purchasing iPhone 5S, instead of the cheaper iPhone 5C

An analyst from KGI Securities, named Ming-Chi Kuo, said that both Apple and China Mobile are in the final segment of signing the much anticipated contract, but the sluggish sales of the iPhone 5C may force the tech giant to alter the terms of the partnership.

According to CNET, Kuo said, “We believe that weak sales of iPhone 5C may trigger a re-negotiation of the Apple-China Mobile partnership.” He added, “However, the indications are that the deal is nearing an end. While recent market speculation calls for the deal to boost 1Q14 iPhone shipments to 45-50mn units, we think this is overly optimistic.” 

According to Apple Balla, a number of analysts inform that the cheaper model of iPhone has not been able to attract the subscribers of the China Mobile network, as they have become really excited purchasing the flagship model of iPhone, the 5S version. As a result, the Cupertino company may have to reset the terms of the contract with a view to induce the China Mobile to vend its devices.

It will be really interesting to see if Apple has to really alter the terms, and how it helps the tech giant to conquer the huge Chinese market.

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.
