China Mobile closes in on iPhone deal

Comments made by China Mobile recently regarding its talks with Apple provided the strongest signal to date that the iPhone could soon be making an appearance in the world's biggest mobile market.

Now Apple is no longer insisting on a revenue-sharing deal, discussions between the pair are focusing on "practical issues", a spokesperson for the Chinese mobile operator told Reuters this week.

However, the source was keen to point out that a deal has not yet been reached, and as such, there is no timetable for the arrival of the handset in China.
