China Telecom hoping to land iPhone, iPad deals

China Telecom has indicated that it would like to offer both the iPhone and iPad at some point. Citing an unnamed company official, the Wall Street Journal reports that China Telecom would like to offer the iPhone in order to attract users to its 3G services, but that it faces a hurdle in doing so due to its use of CDMA technology. “If we can have an iPhone, that would be good, but we’ll just wait and see” whether Apple comes out with a CDMA version of the phone, said the official. The report notes that people familiar with the situation have said Apple is working on a CDMA iPhone, but it has yet to announce any plans to introduce such a device.
