Tomahawk, WI 12/11/2013 (BasicsMedia) – Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will have one of its biggest week yet as China Mobile Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:CHL), the world’s largest telecommunications company,will commence taking pre-orders for the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c this coming Thursday. The two companies were unable to begin the sales of the iPhones due to the fact that Chinese regulators had not approved a network access for the Chinese mobile company. With over 750 million subscribers, more than the three largest phone companies in the United States combined, the China Mobile deal will be a major boost for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL).

Big Boost for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)

Hong Kong-based Analyst Marvin Lo, for Mizuho Securities, spoke to The Wall Street Journal about the deal saying that it is a major boost for the American iPhone manufacturer. Lo estimates that about 70 million wealthy subscribers of the Chinese phone company will become customers for iPhones. Apple Inc., in the past three months, has seen Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) make $5.7 billion in revenues from sales in China and this represents a 24% increase from the previous quarter. The revenues can only increase when this new deal takes place.

The Battle of the Titans

If the sales of iPhones can effectively take root in China, the global market share for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will increase dramatically. While the company’s global market share was on the decline from 14.4 percent to 13.1 in the third quarter, those of its rival,Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930), rose from 31 percent to 31.4 last year. The two companies were recently locked in a patent dispute in the US which Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. lost. While Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) scored in its defense against Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the company seems to be gaining in the market well with the Chinese deal.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) Merger

Apple Inc. (AAPL) continues to remain as the leader in the US smartphone market despite an increase in the share market of rivalSamsung Electronics Co., Ltd. The release of the new iPhones and iPads will definitely do well in the holiday quarter and this will push the company’s stocks upward.  Keith Fitzgerald,Money Map Press analyst, firmly believes that the company could team up with Microsoft Corporation(NASDAQ: MSFT) to take on Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG) in five to ten years. The analyst is of the view that the two companies would have to merge in order to do battle with Google Inc. and its Android operating system and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB).

Fitzgerald observes the significance of content as well as security and a user base that is segmented which has adapted to technology, and the baby boomers that are gradually becoming acclimatized to it. Although it is improbable that regulators would allow these two companies to merge, it is possible that they might form some partnerships should they feel that it makes business sense although this is a big “if”. With a big week for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) ahead, matters that have to do with mergers can take a back seat for the moment.
