China Mobile Chairman Wang Jianzhou and Apple CEO Steve Jobs are in discussions to create a customized iPhone for the carrier’s specialized TD-SCDMA network.

According to a report by TNW’s Matthew Panzarino, “China Mobile has 616 million subscribers, more than any other wireless company in the world, and would be a huge new market for Apple’s iPhone.”

As well, China Telecom – the smallest of China’s three telecommunications carriers – is also in iPhone negotiations with Apple.

According to a Reuters Canada report, “China Telecom competes with China Mobile Ltd and China Unicom, and would only increase handset subsidies if it started selling iPhones to draw more users to use its network.
