According to reports from TechNode, it also appears that Steve Jobs has talked to the CEO of Youku to discuss the possibility of having Youku on Chinese devices instead of YouTube. A close look at the photo of the white iPhone 4 on Apple’s China website reveals that the YouTube icon is missing from the device.
