According to analyst Brian Blair of research firm Wedge Partners, the iPhone 5S will be available for the first time at China Mobile.

Although the company has more than 15 million customers who use the iPhone, they all deal with devices sold unlocked.

The analyst expects a TD-SCDMA version of the iPhone 5S to enteer production next month.

Blair also believes that Apple will not release a cheaper iPhone model. Instead, the company will continue to provide the iPhone 4 after the release of the iPhone 5S.

As for the Apple brand TV, he presumes that Apple is developing a prototype and that the iTV will be launched in 12-18 months.

A recent Wall Street Journal report stated that the next iPhone is currently in production stage and will be on store shelves this summer.
