China Mobile to Start Taking iPhone Pre-Orders Later This Week
Published on: 9th Dec 2013
Although China Mobile recently dismissed reports that it had signed a deal with Apple saying that talks are still ongoing Apple's products are now appearing on China Mobile's own website.
Citing a screenshot of the pre-order page for China Mobile's forthcoming 4G service, the Wall Street Journal noted that it included images of Apple's iPhone 5s handset, amongst others.
It is possible this was just a web designer grabbing images of token handsets, but that would be unusual, if not entirely impossible.
However, the WSJ also called the customer care team who said that the Apple phone would be available for pre-order from this Thursday (12th Dec), in time for the 4G launch a week later.
There are no prices for the phone or the tariffs on the website yet.
