Apple, China Mobile sign long-awaited deal to sell iPhones

NEW YORK/BEIJING (Reuters) – Apple Inc said it has signed a long-awaited agreement with China Mobile Ltd to sell iPhones through the world’s biggest network of mobile phone users. In a deal that could add billions of dollars to its revenue, Apple said its smartphones will be available to China Mobile customers starting January 17. China Mobile, which has about 760 million customers, will begin registering orders for iPhone from December 25, the company said on its account on the Sina-Weibo micro-blogging service. The tie-up between the pair, in the United States company’s second-largest market after its home turf, provides a much-needed boost for Apple in a market where it’s trailing rivals.
