Speaking at the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference today, China Mobile’s Chairman, Wang Jianzhou, let go an interesting tidbit of Apple information. “Jobs has expressed his interest in an LTE iPhone and is willing to start the development at an early date,” said the Chairman. China Mobile currently runs a TD-LTE network in mainland China, but the invisible line we’re drawing from the words “LTE iPhone” leads directly to *drumroll* Verizon Wireless and AT&T. Apple has, historically, been slow to adopt new cellular radios into its flagship product — we’re referencing, of course, how long it took for 3G to make its way into the iPhone. We’re sure as June draws nearer, we’ll get a better idea of what Apple has up its sleeve for its next phone.
