In other Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) news, it appears the Cupertino-based tech giant made a deal with China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE:CHL) (HKG:0941) to allow the iPhone on their network. Bloomberg explained, “Apple Inc. (AAPL) wants to hire an engineer with extensive knowledge of China Mobile Ltd. (941)’s homegrown phone network, evidence it’s moving toward an agreement for the world’s largest carrier to offer the iPhone. The manager, who will be based in Beijing, will “support and drive the carrier approval of mobile phones,” Apple said in an advertisement on its China website. The position seeks experience with TD-SCDMA, China Mobile’s own third-generation standard that isn’t used by other carriers.”
Big things are coming for Apple
China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE:CHL) (HKG:0941) is one of the world’s largest carriers with 700 million customers. It was also the largest carrier Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) had yet to reach an agreement with. The main reason behind this was that iPhones didn’t work on the China Mobile network, as they used TD-SCMDA, and iPhones don’t have the chips that were required to get in the network standards. Fortunately, that has changed and Apple has now been approved for their TD-SCMDA smartphones.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s deal with China Mobile Ltd. (NYSE:CHL) (HKG:0941) should help propel the company further in competition. Big things are coming for Apple.
