China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou recently made several comments regarding his company’s ongoing talks with Apple over the iPhone, Bloomberg reports. “China Mobile and Apple hope to find a solution for close collaboration” on the company’s fourth-generation TD-LTE network, Wang said in an interview with Dalian.

“We discussed this issue with Apple. We hope Apple will produce a new iPhone with TD-LTE.

We have already got a positive answer from Apple.” Talks between the two companies date back to 2007; Apple CEO Tim Cook was reportedly spotted visiting the company’s headquarters earlier this year. China Mobile is the world’s largest cellular provider with over 600 million subscribers.
