Description:: China Mobile on Monday formally launched its Ophone platform and Ophone handsets, days after its rival China Unicom's non-exclusive iPhone deal with Apple.

According to Wang Jianzhou, president of nation's biggest telecom operator, the Ophone platform is the first mobile Internet-oriented smart mobile terminal software platform that has been developed by a telecom operator. It is expected to significantly improve the competitiveness of China Mobile's TD-SCDMA terminals.

Meanwhile, China Mobile may also see possible deal with Apple, as the U.S. technology giant's three-year deal with China Unicom is not exclusive, in sharp contrast to its U.S. arrangement with AT&T Inc.
