Report: China Mobile to carry iPhone 5C

Updated

China Mobile will carry Apple’s iPhone 5C, according to a tweet from Wall Street Journal reporter Ian Sherr. It’s been speculated that China Mobile, the world’s largest carrier, would carry the iPhone — especially after Apple announced its Sept. 11 event at Beijing’s China World Trade Center. Apple and China Mobile have long been in negotiations for the carrier to sell the device. Sherr did not report any additional information about any other iPhone models China Mobile might sell; given the carrier’s long-time interest in an iPhone model catering to price-conscious customers, it’s possible that China Mobile could only carry the iPhone 5C.
