Hi, Sanjib. The number "200 million customers" I threw in the story is partly driven by the massive shift currently occuring among China Mobile users swtiching from 2G to TD-SCDMA. As for Samsung in China? They are doing really well.

After a long time I am seeing a strategic decision that is going in favor of Nokia. But not sure for how long as 200 million customers in China switch their handset every year! By the way, how is Samsung doing in China?

As I wrote in the story, it's not the technical issue that Apple doesn't have TD-SCDMA iPhones. It's a partnership deal Apple has been unable to make with China Mobile.

I don't think it would be that hard since both phones (920T and iphone5) use Qualcomm-based chipsets/technology for the modems.

How difficult is it for Apple to come out with a TD-SCDMA compatible phone model though? I shouldn't think it would be that difficult if they really wanted to. But this is a really good deal for Nokia.... while it lasts.
