Apple Invades China

Despite some concerns that Apple didn't build a cheap enough iPhone, come this Thursday, "China Mobile, the largest wireless carrier in the world, will start taking pre-orders for Apple's iPhone".  And yet the expectations are running high that the iPhone will quickly gain significant market share.  Perhaps staying as a premier brand with a high price point along with the recent release of its iPhone 5s, with a gold back, China might just fall in love with the iPhone just as the US and other markets do. 

Of course, once China Mobile has the iPhone then so do consumers gain access to the iTunes library and the opportunity to buy apps, music and movies.  And for me gaining more users into the Apple infrastructure means access to more of Apple's products including iPads, Apple TV and more.  The China Mobile launch is certainly a big deal.
