iPhone already dominating one China Mobile store in Shenzhen

Now everything is out in the open, it's not that surprising that the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c has been spotted on display in at least one China Mobile store, but it does make it all that little bit more real. Better yet, according to PRC, the iPhone is already starting to take over the display space:

A majority of the ad and display space in the store had been dedicated to Apple. If this is any indication, China Mobile is planning to aggressively promote their new Apple partnership in the hopes of blunting any advances from China Unicom and Telecom.

Considering before the iPhone came along the same space was dedicated to the likes of Samsung and local brands such as Huawei. We know China is a big deal for Apple, and with the world's largest carrier finally on board, there could be a bright future.

iPhone already dominating one China Mobile store in Shenzhen


This is exciting! I'm glad to see China Mobile on board with the iPhone. This is great for those subscribers in China as well.

It certainly is a large market. Once Apple has tapped into all of the larger markets maybe we'll see an iPhone show up in emerging markets in a few years?

Not unless they make a truly low-cost device. The current "Apple premium" prices they use are simply not feasible in emerging markets. Hence why cheap androids and feature phones still dominate those markets.

I agree that Apple might not be able to fully dominate the smartphone market in China because of the price but I believe that will still perform nicely in China. Even if they can just get at least 30% of the smartphone market share in China then it's still additional sales for Apple and less profit to competitors.
