    So it could, but it won't. Eventually, they'll switch over.

    I'd say at least 6-8 years longer. Old networks die hard.

    is LTE compatible with TD-SCMA?

    if yes, then this story has some remote chance of being accurate.

    apple would not build a separate model just for China Mobile until much later in the iPhone brand maturity - apple wont ignore a pool of 600 million users, but it doesnt jump at any opportunity that entails rolling out a separate SKU until it has maximised current version potential.

    But then the iPhone will cost 4x the amount we pay now due to a moderate increase in labor cost. And I'm pretty sure those who make the phones here would want health benefits and 401(k)s
