It won’t happen by the end of the year, but China Mobile will finally get the iPhone. After weeks of speculation and talk, Apple and the world’s largest carrier entered into an agreement on Sunday that will see the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c launch on January 17th.

The multi-year agreement will make the iPhone available to more than 700 million users of China Mobile’s network. Despite being the largest in the country, the carrier’s network is the last of the big three Chinese mobile providers to carry Apple’s game-changing device.

China Mobile will support the iPhone 5s and 5c on its 3G network as well as its fledgling 4G LTE network. Pre-order will begin this Wednesday, December 25th.
