According to a latest announcement, Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) latest version of iPhone is predicted to arrive in October under assistance from China Mobile’s proprietary 3G network, turning it into a “true world phone”.
In his meetings with suppliers, Shaw Wu of Sterne Agee has reported that support for China Mobile’s TD-SCDMA 3G network would be a “critical factor” of Apple’s sixth-generation iPhone. China Mobile is the world’s biggest cellular operator, with over 650 million mobile users.
Wu commented that tests for high-speed 4G long-term evolution networks are presently in progress in China, but extensive acceptance of LTE is possibly to be 2 to 3 years away. According to his viewpoint, strong 3G support is “critical” for the coming iPhone to find victory with China Mobile.
