China Mobile insists on continuing talks with Apple

China Mobile talks persist

Cellphone carrier China Mobile remains in talks with Apple, the company's CEO claims. "We have been discussing with Apple, but until now no agreement has been reached," Wang Jianzhou explained to reporters following an annual results announcement. The executive went on to insist that the company is entirely open to outsiders, so long as there is profit to be made, according to Agence France Presse.

The statement comes in spite earlier signs that the company may have severe differences of opinion with Apple. Although controversial revenue sharing plans have been dismissed, China Mobile is said to be eager for share of the App Store, both in terms of income and control. Rival China Unicom has in fact been considered a prime contender, due not only to the company's own talks with Apple but direct compatibility with the iPhone's 3G networking technology.

    Now for a change the Chinese are competing against each other... Apple will be the winner in that battle, as a third party. It's nice to see the good ole USA back in business again!
