China Mobile now Forced to buy Apple's iPhones (sooner versus later)
The move to 4G may help the China Mobile win agreements with handset makers that haven’t supported its homegrown 3G network, including Apple. China Mobile is the only one of the country’s three carriers not offering the iPhone. But that will change very quickly since China Mobile has signaled it will begin selling iPhones in mid to late November. No wonder Apple stock is ramping higher today.
