(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – China Mobile has announced that they will start taking pre-orders for iPhones and other smart devices starting on Thursday, December 12th.
China Mobile Shanghai’s website states “4G is here!” Customers can pre-order the iPhone 5S, along with Samsung and Sony devices, as long as they support their new 4G mobile network, reports The Wall Street Journal.
The company will offer commercial 4G services to cities including Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjian, Guangzhou, Shenshen, and Nanjing by the end of the year. China Mobile is also aiming to expand the 4G network coverage to other Chinese cities.
“Customers can begin to preorder for our new 4G services from Dec. 12 through the company’s website and some dedicated branches in Shanghai. But we will only start providing commercial 4G services after Dec. 18,” states a customer service operator for the company.
A price plan is being prepared for the new iPhones, but has not yet been released.
