Smartphones to account for 80 per cent of sales.
Chinese operator China Mobile has announced a dream goal of selling 100m mobile phones next year, according to the Shanghai Daily, with the result rising 25 per cent rise on 2012 sales.
The network plans to achieve its goal with exclusive regional designs from Motorola and Nokia, who will make more than 60 per cent of handsets, while China Mobile's Ma Jingxin said smartphones will account for 80 per cent of sales.
The head of the mobile end division, said: "Smartphone sales will be a major catalyst for our sales as demand of mobile phone replacement surges."
The firm recently secured 15 per cent of a voice recognition company for $214m and developed an NFC-enabled device to further its growth. However, it should probably avoid charging PAYG customers $107,000 for top-ups if it wants to reach its goal.
