The Chinese government will wait 2-3 years to issue licenses for 4G networks based on the TD-LTE standard, says a government official. Such a holdup could be problematic for China Mobile (CHL), which has been conducting TD-LTE trials. It could also be a negative for Apple (AAPL) and 4G chipmaker Sequans (SQNS); the former has reportedly promised China Mobile a TD-LTE iPhone, while the latter has taken part in trials.

    The opertive comment was that China wants to have an adequate supply of 4G-LTE phones available. If Apple arrives in early 2013 with such a phone in quantity, I am sure licenses will be made available.
