Surprise, surprise! Talks between China Mobile and Apple over bringing the iPhone to China (legally) have stalled yet again – this time over the iTunes apps store. Allegedly, China Mobile is itching to operate the application store itself in a typical ploy to retain as much control as possible. Also, unlike their Western counterparts, Chinese phone users don’t typically have credit cards, preferring to pay for things by depositing money into their mobile phone accounts. Add that to already ongoing issues like figuring out which of the three 3G networks the iPhone plays the nicest with, and it’s probably safe to say we won’t be seeing any Made-for-China goodness soon.
