Apple’s Tim Cook Visits China Mobile to Discuss 4G LTE iPhone

Apple Chief Operating Officer Tim Cook is spotted at China Mobile headquarters this morning. A Chinese reporter from First Financial Daily (one of the most prosperous financial papers in China) managed to take a picture of Tim Cook walking in the lobby of China Mobile’s HQ, and there are 7-8 people walking along with Cook. And Cook seemed to be happy.

Here’s what the reporter posted to her Sina microblog this evening:

“This morning, around 10, Apple COO Tim Cook is spotted in the lobby of China Mobile’s HQ, accompanied by 7-8 people. Probably Cook is talking with executives from China Mobile to discuss bilateral cooperation for the iPhone. Both China and America flags are seen in the lobby, and Cook seems to be happy.”

Previously, China Mobile, the country’s largest wireless operator, confirmed that it had “reached consensus” with Apple related to support for their fourth-generation TD-LTE radio technology in future iPhones. China Mobile CEO Wang Jianzhou told MarketWatch that his company will begin commercial trials of the 4G TD-LTE technology next year, but refused to provide a time-frame for a possible 4G LTE iPhone launch in the country. With today’s update on Tim Cook visiting China Mobile, we think the cooperation between China Mobile and Apple will be HUGE. If Apple is going to use TD-LTE in the next iPhone you can bet your arse that every carrier in the world will be making sure their “4G” will be TD-LTE too when it gets deployed. So, does this tell us that an iPhone 5 with 4G LTE support is coming soon?
