It’s the same old song and dance between Apple and Chinese wireless carriers. In the latest round of we-said they-said negotiations surrounding the iPhone, China Mobile’s CEO Wang Jianzhou confirmed that Apple and China Mobile were still in talks to bring the iPhone to China, but no deal has yet been made.
