Apple invites media to Beijing Sept 11 event: reports (BusinessTimes)
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has invited Chinese journalists to an event in Beijing on Sept 11, just hours after it is widely expected to unveil its newest iPhone models in the United States, Chinese media reported on Wednesday. It would mark the first time that the company has held near-simultaneous events in the United States and in China. It could also fuel speculation that it may announce a long-awaited deal with China Mobile Ltd. (ADR) (NYSE:CHL), which is the world’s biggest mobile phone company by customers and the only one of China’s big carriers that does not have an agreement with Apple.

(NASDAQ:AAPL) has done. But there are plenty of reasons to question whether the copycat approach will pay off.
