Re: Apple on China Mobile
Yeah, it's not a problem to activate an extra band. Right now both Apple and China Mobile really need each other so I can't see Apple not giving itself the best chance in China. Will be interesting to see the pricing, and how much if any subsidy China Mobile brings.

Re: Apple on China Mobile
Well you can bet they're working on a TD-LTE model for -- what -- later in 2014 or 2015. Not like it won't take a while to get a decent network footprint.

Re: Apple on China Mobile
I don't see how this would excite Apple, unless they come out with a new phone. Their phones don't support China Mobile's 2600MHz (band 41). They have this same problem with Sprint, but it isn't as big an issue there because it isn't yet a key band in Sprint's network.

Re: Apple on China Mobile
Sarah, do you think that will help Apple in China?  The price point of the devices seems to be a larger issue there or did I miss something while I was traveling?

Apple on China Mobile
I can tell you one company that is very excited about this: Apple. Samsung has the lead in China, and Apple has been looking to compete there for a long time. Having the support of China Mobile will be huge for it.
