“China Mobile, the world’s largest cellular carrier by subscribers, began accepting reservations for Apple’s unannounced next-generation iPhone on Tuesday and has subsequently racked up more than 33,000 orders since going live,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“Currently limited to customers in Beijing, China Mobile’s reservations list went live earlier on Tuesday with order options tentatively confirming 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch ‘iPhone 6’ iterations, reports China Daily. Currently, customers can save their place in line through the company’s website and are being asked whether they prefer a 4.7-inch iPhone or 5.5-inch version, both new screen sizes rumored to debut with this year’s model,” Campbell reports. “The move to open online reservations ahead of an official Apple unveiling is not an unusual one for China Mobile, which did the same thing with a network-specific 4G LTE iPhone 5s last year. ”
