17 million to 38.7 million iPhones sold: thatâ€™s the range of analyst estimates for the number of iPhones Apple will sell next year, due to its newly inked deal with China Mobile. China Mobile is the worldâ€™s largest wireless carrier with 700 million customers. However, unlike in the United States, Chinese consumers will be buying their phones at their full, unsubsidized price. The iPhone will cost between $700 and $850 depending on the model, while the average China Mobile smartphone is less than half of that price.
