iphone 5s 5c

It was announced earlier this month that Japan’s largest mobile carrier, NTT DoCoMo, has signed a deal with Apple to sell the iPhone on its network. Its two major rivals, KDDI and SoftBank, already offer the iPhone. The carrier reportedly lost quite a lot of subscribers because it wasn’t offering Apple’s popular smartphone. A new report from Nikkei suggests that DoCoMo has promised that 40 percent of all of its smartphone sales will be accounted for by the new iPhones.

It has only been a couple of days since Apple announced iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C. Both new iPhones will be launched in Japan on September 20th, which is the initial launch date for the smartphones. DoCoMo has nearly 60 million subscribers, which makes it the largest carrier in Japan. It previously was at an impasse with Apple, the carrier reportedly wanted to install its own specific apps on the iPhone before selling them and Apple was not allowing that. iPhones don’t usually come with “bloatware,” the kind you’ll find on phones from other manufacturers. It has not been revealed how both parties came to an agreement. Analysts believe that Apple might end up shipping an additional 35 million iPhone units due to its deal with DoCoMo and China Mobile, though a deal with the latter, which is the world’s largest mobile carrier, is yet to be confirmed.
