China Unicom CEO Chang Xiaobing told the Wall Street Journal that the firm is working with Apple to add Wi-Fi functionality to its iPhones in China. He also said current iPhone owners – whose devices don’t include Wi-Fi due to Chinese government opposition – may be compensated in the form of cheaper 3G rates.

Telenor-backed Indian cellco Uninor, which has launched GSM1800 services in eight circles, is planning to raise 94 billion rupees ($2.1b) in debt for network expansion, said Business Standard.

ZTE will open European test and research center in Dusseldorf, Germany. The centre, which is operated by Vodafone Germany, will become the hub for ZTE’s network testing in the region.

Bluetooth 4.0 devices could begin shipping by the end of the year. The latest version of the standard adds Bluetooth low-energy support as a requirement, but this is unlikely to have an effect on battery life for most gadgets.

Former Fujitsu president, Kuniaki Nozoe is seeking to be reinstated, after his controversial resignation in September.
