Apple to Partner with China Mobile

It's official: Apple really is all lined up for world domination. Reports emerged Saturday that the company is set to ship phones to China Mobile, China's largest wireless carrier. China Mobile has about 700 million subscribers across the country, or seven times more than the largest carrier in the U.S., Verizon. Most importantly for Apple, China Mobile has reportedly been added to the list of carriers that will be receiving a new low-cost iPhone, which may significantly increase the company's reach. It is unclear whether an official agreement has yet been signed or when the phones will actually be shipped.
