The size and market opportunity of China's leading wireless operator, China Mobile (NYSE:CHL), are truly staggering. With more than 332 million subscribers in a market far from saturation, China Mobile presents a rare investment combination: massive size with similarly large long-run growth potential. Its competition? As China Mobile bull Dave Mock says, the "company dwarfs its closest competitor, China Unicom (NYSE:CHU), outperforming it in almost every measure."

And now, duel on!
