China Mobile releasing 3G-capable Windows Phone device China Mobile has announced that it will be releasing a Windows Phone 7 device that is compatible with the carrier's 3G network.
The move is significant for Microsoft and Nokia as China Mobile has 655 million mobile phone subscribers, by far the most in the world.

Apple has yet to get an iPhone available through China Mobile and many believe that fact will keep Apple a bit player in the world's most populous nation.

Pan Zhiyong, general manager of China Mobile's Guangzhou branch, says the phone will be available "imminently" and support the China Mobile 3G (TD-SCDMA) network. It is still unclear which device will be launched.

The device is widely expected to be the upcoming Nokia Lumia 900, although neither the company nor the carrier would confirm.
