China Mobile: iPhone talks have ‘cleared hurdle’

China Mobile’s negotiations with Apple over the iPhone 3G have made it past their most difficult stage, according to a China Mobile spokeswoman. China Mobile has been in talks to carry the iPhone since last November, but found Apple’s prior insistence on a revenue sharing agreement to be a sticking point. “Apple is no longer insisting on a revenue-sharing policy, so the biggest hurdle for China Mobile to bring in the iPhone has been cleared, but there are practical issues still to be resolved,” said China Mobile spokeswoman Rainie Lei. Apple executives have prevously said they hoped to have the iPhone available in China sometime in 2008.
