aside, China Mobile is apparently still
very interested in bringing the iPhone to mainland China -- and thanks to the return of the traditional revenue model for the iPhone 3G, balls are once again rolling to make that happen. China Mobile called the original iPhone's model the single biggest "hurdle" to sealing a deal, and at this point, only "practical" issues remain -- probably revolving around the fact that China has no WCDMA networks to speak of, if we had to guess, which would raise question about exactly how the iPhone 3G should be marketed there. For the time being, China Mobile says there's no schedule for bringing it to market -- and we know we can't rely on Apple for much guidance there until a deal actually happens -- so we'll just have to wait and see what those execs can get knocked out behind closed doors.
