    Apple & China Mobile

    China has a history of wanting technology transfer from companies that do business in China. GM battery technology as a latest example. Wondering whether that has been part of the delay?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • The delay was China Mobile didn't even receive a license from the Chinese government to operate a 4G network until last week. Also, their network won't operate at full capacity immediately, another reason why they were doing a pre-sales rollout in some of the larger cities instead of all at once. Apple would not have a deal with China Mobile without the 4G network and since they only got the license last week, that explains why it's taken this long.
