Japanese Carrier DoCoMo to Finally Carry iPhone Starting This Fall

Posted by · 7029 views · Translate
Japan's largest mobile carrier, DoCoMo, will finally begin selling the iPhone this fall after Apple and the carrier were stuck in negotiations for years. Just last month, it was reported that the two were in talks to sell the popular smartphone.

According to a report from Nikkei, DoCoMo will begin selling new models of the iPhone starting this fall after Apple and DoCoMo reached agreements over terms and conditions, including sales, claims Nikkei. It was reported that DoCoMo was insisting on allowing its own services and apps preloaded on to the device -- something Apple does not allow, so its not clear how that hurdle was resolved.

The Japanese carrier has seen a total loss of 3.2 million users over the last four years, something that can be attributed to lack of carrying the iPhone. Other Japanese carriers like Softbank and KDDI have carrier the iPhone for years.

It is likely that DoCoMo will carry both the iPhone 5S as well as the low costing iPhone 5C. Nikkei previously reported that the 5S and 5C would launch in Japan September 20 - the same day for the United States.

Apple is expected to announce the new iPhone models at its September 10 iPhone event.

About fn time. Wow the Japanese can be stubborn as faek. Now watch then make money again. What a hurdle it's not that big a deal. Certainly not worth 3.4 million users at 10,000 yen each!
