Apple, which can appeal the ruling, could face an additional fine of up to Tw$50 million if it fails to comply, the commission said.

San Francisco - Apple and China Mobile have inked a deal to offer iPhones on the colossal telecom firm's network in that country's coveted market, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

The Wall Street Journal cited unnamed sources as saying China Mobile is expected to add iPhones to its roster of compatible smartphones later this month.

Such a deal would be a boon for Apple, which has made a priority of the China market where China Mobile has more than 700 million subscribers but has yet to offer the iPhone. - Sapa-AFP
