Remarks made in Davos suggest that Apple is building a model for China Mobile

Will the iPhone 5 be the one that finally cracks open the No. 1 carrier in the world's biggest cell phone market?

That's the thrust of a report out of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, that cites remarks made by China Mobile (CHL) chairman Wang Jianzhou.

"We hope that when they develop the next-generation models, since Apple can create CDMA, they can also consider developing TD-SCDMA," Wang was quoted as saying in Reuters report Wednesday, via the Chinese-language Sina Technology news portal.

"These two years we have been discussing the issue," Wang continues. "Right now the situation is moving forward. Apple has made it clear they will support TD-LTE."
