China Mobile in talks with Apple

  • The world's biggest mobile phone network, China Mobile, is in talks with Apple and could soon offer its customers the iPhone.

    Compatibility issues between the iPhone and China Mobile's 3G network mean that Apple's handsets currently only work on the 2G service.

    The issue could be resolved with the launch of the next iPhone, rumoured to happen this summer, and when China adopts the 4G standard.

    China Mobile is the country's biggest mobile phone network. In terms of users, it is the world’s largest with more 660 million customers.
