China Mobile chairman says still in talks with Apple on iPhone deal

China Mobile Ltd said it’s still in talks with Apple Inc to sell iPhones amid mounting industry speculation that the pair are about to announce a deal to net the technology giant hundreds of millions of potential new customers. Xi Guohua, the chairman of the world’s largest mobile phone carrier, said on Wednesday morning that his company had no announcement to make on any deal to carry Apple’s smartphones. Xi was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of a conference in Guangzhou, a southern city of China. A tie-up between the pair in the U.S. company’s second-largest market after its home turf has been expected for some time and would boost Apple in its global rivalry with South Korea’s Samsung Electronics Co Ltd.
