Evidence is mounting that a deal is closer than most probably realize.

Apple (AAPL 2.14%) disappointed investors earlier this month when it failed to announce a deal with the world's largest telecom provider China Mobile (CHL) during the unveiling of its newest line of iPhones.

However, that doesn't mean a deal is off the table. As discussed before, more news has emerged to suggest that a potential deal is alive and well in the weeks since Apple's keynote event. Investors recently received yet another possible piece of evidence when leaked photos of marketing material about the iPhone on China Mobile appeared online. This is the latest in a series of news items that point to this deal inching closer by the day.

It's no secret that this deal would be a shot in the arm for both growth-starved companies and their shareholders. In the video below, Fool contributor Andrew Tonner examines the recent news.
