China Mobile iPhone launch

Apple Inc is finally launching its iPhone on China Mobile Ltd's vast

network on Friday, opening the door to the world's largest carrier's 763

million subscribers and giving its China sales a short-term jolt.

Underlining how much the launch means for Apple, Chief Executive Tim

Cook was on hand as the carrier's flagship store opened in Beijing's

financial district. With China Mobile Chairman Xi Guohua alongside, Cook gave  signed iPhones to a handful of customers and posed for pictures.
