Apple has YouTube app pre-installed on its iPhone since the first day. But in China, the YouTube app is removed as the service is blocked anyway. So you may be wondering who might replace YouTube.

We just heard a rumor from a trusted resource saying Victor Koo of YouKu, the leading online video service listed on NYSE, has met Steve Jobs to discuss of the possibility of having YouKu app pre-installed for iPhone officially sold in China. Interesting! It’s always good to work with Apple.

We are trying to gather more information about this, so please stay tuned.

  1. Interesting. I wondered if HTC’s relaunching itself in China would take over China smartphone market with a superior product that’s localized (as an “Apple of China”), but now it seems Apple may actually bust some moves in China. Interesting to see what happens.
