China feels the iPhone excitement
Thursday, November 15, 2007/
The iPhone could soon be introduced into China, BusinessWeek reports. China’s largest mobile carrier, China Mobile, is reportedly in talks with Apple to become the distributor for the iPhone in the world’s most populous country.
A successful launch into China would be the icing on the cake for the iPhone, which has proved remarkably popular since launching the US earlier this year.
Well, popular everywhere except the UK, anyway. According to BusinessWeek, the company given distribution rights for the iPhone in the UK, O2, has focused on consumers to the exclusion of business customers, leaving a key market for the expensive device rather unhappy.
In particular, the report says, business customers are unhappy that they cannot get a plan with business call rates, which are generally lower price and higher volume than customer plans.
