US smartphone manufacturer Apple has reached an agreement with china mobile to bring its iPhone to the world’s biggest phone market. China prides itself on being the biggest mobile and smartphone market in the world ;and it will stay the first and the biggest unless India takes the lead .
The new deal is expected to boost Apple sales in China ;after this historic deal apple’s Shares in US technology have jumped 3% .
As for the Chinese firm ,it is the world’s largest carrier(China Mobile has more than 760 million subscribers.) and was one of three networks to be awarded China’s first 4G licences earlier this month ,a godsend for the giant Apple.
But on the downside Chinese sales of previous iPhone models had not been a glorious success, as consumers have turned to cheaper rival handsets from Samsung, and domestic Chinese developers.
