Apple in Talks with China Mobile for iPhone

<

p>China Mobile revealed that they are having talks with Apple to bring the iPhone to China. The deal was revealed by China Mobile CEO Wang Jianzhou, but they have yet to really seal the deal. From an executive spokesperson at China Mobile:

"Of course, we hope to bring the iPhone to China. But for the time being we are only in preliminary contact with Apple, and we have not made any concrete progress yet."

UPDATE: iLounge found some more Wang quotes. He's apparently not excited to share any revenue with Apple, though he's excited to carry the iPhone itself:

Our customers like this kind of fashionable product. We still think we can maintain the operator-centric model because we have the customers, the end users.

I know this goes against what we have heard over the last couple of days but I believe that there has been a deal signed recently and these actions have forced/enabled Apple to act on resellers without a contract. The evidence can be seen in Apple going after unlocked resellers in that Singapore mall. They now have a duty to protect their client, whoever that may be.
