Tim Cook spotted at China Mobile headquarters

Suggests new Chinese iPhone coverage soon

Apple COO Tim Cook made an appearance at China Mobile's headquarters on Wednesday morning, according to a reporter for local publication First Financial Daily. Cook was spotted walking with seven or eight other people, a claim backed by a photo of him in the China Mobile lobby. The exact reason for his visit is unknown, although it was likely related to expanding iPhone sales.

Apple could be looking to bring the iPhone 4 to more Chinese carriers, since China Unicom is the only official carrier in the country. As the next-generation iPhone is expected to ship in September, though, a deal for the newer hardware may be in the works. Apple and China Mobile are also said to have "reached consensus" on supporting TD-LTE in iPhones, even if an LTE-capable model may not ship until 2012.
