Forbes is one of several news sources reporting that Apple and China Mobile have agreed on a plan that will bring the option of iPhones to tens of millions of customers of the Chinese carrier. A separate article contains something that may be at least as interesting as the deal itself, and that's some speculation on what sort of network China Mobile will be using for all those iDevices.

    And their percentage of mobile revenue and profits? Apple always sold a premium product, I don't think they have any desire to lead in marketshare.

    Untrue. You can get a Galaxy S4, and HTC One for .99c for free, or a Nokia 920 compared to the the 5s that runs between $125 and $199. You can get an S3 free whereas the the 5c runs between $25 and & $99. /i work for a major Telecom and I have to keep track of pricing of who is selling what, for how much, and where.

    Neither the s4 or the HTC One have the performance levels of the 5s.

    Their performance comes nowhere near the iPhone 5s.

    And are you really saying that a $25 difference between the s3 and the (faster) 5c is consequential - especially considering the 2 year contract?
