Apple signed a contract with China Mobile – The biggest mobile operator worldwide
Although it has not been easy, Apple is trying for a long time for expanding in China and they have just nailed a deal with the management of the largest mobile operator in the world, China Mobile.
Most times, Apple contracts with various local telephone operators do not have a major impact on the company’s products or on others iDevice users around the world. Earlier statement was valid until these days. Even if they already have a significant presence in Asia and in September of this year reached an agreement with the largest Japanese operator, NTT DOCOMO, these details are insignificant compared with the most recent partnership of the Cupertino giant.
In a press release from yesterday, Tim Cook’s Company has informed us about the deal with China Mobile. It is the largest mobile operator in the world with over 750 million subscribers. Newly contract involves making Apple preorders in China, on the operator website, from 25 December for iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S and making the actual sales on January 17.
“iPhone users from China are a rapidly growing enthusiastic group and we cannot think of a better way to welcome Chinese new year than by bringing an iPhone in the hands of each subscriber of China Mobile who wants one.” Tim Cook was happy of this business that might reflect in 2014, in the worst case, on over 12 million iPhones sold in the Asian territory.
