Perhaps Tim Cook had some success with his meeting with China Mobile?
Jeremy Horwitz of iLoounge wrote a piece that said:
"...Also planned for a 2013 release is Apple’s “low-cost” plastic-bodied iPhone, which is being developed with China Mobile in mind: the government-owned telecom company has over 700 million subscribers. One of our sources claims that Apple’s iPhone prices remain too high for most mainland Chinese customers..."
Looks like the apple killer is getting under your skin. Nokia on China Mobile, Lumia 920T 1 yuan with contract. Apple - no Deal still may have to do 5 begging trips to China Mobile. Recommend selling all overpriced stock, invest in Beggin' Strips for resale for upcoming trips. LOL
Not if they come out with 3 plastic knock offs of the present I5 or I4 designs, with or without different colors - as I read somewhere. They need true size variation which , for unknown reasons they can't seem to comprehend - maybe the ghost of Jobs is still pulling strings from the grave. They seem stuck in the past. Why did it take them 2 yrs to come out with an iphone 5, They have 80,000 employees for goodness sake - what are they doing. The competition comes out with new models every 6 mos. Is Apple becoming too stodgy? ! Doesn't look good for the future !!
