China Telecom in touch with Apple on CDMA iPhone: chairman

HONG KONG (Reuters) - China Telecom Corp Ltd (0728.HK), the smallest of the country’s three wireless carriers, is in touch with Apple Inc (AAPL.O) on introducing iPhones based on CDMA technology, Chairman Wang Xiaochu said on Friday.

Wang, speaking to reporters after a shareholders’ meeting, also said China Telecom would consider Hong Kong as first priority if issuing overseas bonds.

China Telecom, a relative newcomer to China’s mobile market, operates the country’s largest fixed-line network and is aggressively promoting broadband over that channel.
