    + According to the 12Q3 results of China Mobile (0941: HKG; CHL: NYSE), the company's operating revenue and net profit in the first three quarters were CNY 408.6 billion and CNY 93.3 billion, up 6.4 percent and 1.4 percent year-on-year respectively.

    + Over the 12Q1-Q3 period, the company's monthly net addition of subscribers exceeded an average of 5.4 million. Total number of 3G subscribers reached 75.6 million in the reporting period. It reported the average revenue per user (ARPU) of CNY 67.

    + China Mobile is said to raise its 2012 earnings target in order to appear more favorable ahead of the performance appraisal to be administered by the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission at the end of this year. However, China International Capital Corporation (OTCQB:CICC) estimated that the company may not perform so well in the last quarter of 2012 due to competition in the middle- and low-end market and the launch of iPhone 5. China Mobile is behind its competitors in distributing iPhones in mainland China.
