Apple’s New Friend: Japan's DoCoMo To Start Selling iPhones

As far as Apple rumors go, usually it’s all about new products that the Cupertino company is trying to keep under wraps (but is also glad that people are rumor-mongering about), but this one pertains to yet another carrier that will soon carry the iPhone.

According to Reuters, the Nikkei says that Japan’s NTT DoCoMo will start carrying iPhones as early as this fall. Ostensibly, this move will allow DoCoMo to better compete with rivals SoftBank and KDDI, and reportedly DoCoMo will sell the device at prices similar to its competition.

For Apple, of course, this simply means that more mobile customers will have iPhones in their hands and will give the company another chunk of global market share.

The new deal is expected to be announced on September 10th in conjunction with the announcement of Apple’s newest spate of iPhones.
