According to the latest reports, Apple strikes China Mobile deal, which allows the Cupertino-based company to have its phones on the line-up of the world’s largest mobile operator by users, at more than 700 million subscribers. The information was published by The Wall Street Journal and originates from “sources” familiar with the matter which remained anonymous.

China Mobile is expected to have a conference in Guangzhou on December 18; that date seems to be the date hinted for Apple’s products to be available on the carrier’s line-up. However, the carrier is expected to unveil a brand for its 4G network, at the event, and the iPhone would only be available after the introduction of 4G services.

While Apple did not comment on the matter, having the iPhone on the world’s largest mobile operator will surely give Apple a boost in sales, even if China Mobile was “one of the world’s last major carriers”, as WSJ notes, to ink a deal with Apple.
