DoCoMo is in Talks with Apple to Sell new iPhone

The shares of DoCoMo have risen considerably. This is in contrast to its competitors, KDDI and Softbank. DoCoMo being the biggest carrier in the Japanese market is all set to gain a contract for the iPhone. Meanwhile, its twin rivals own Sprint yet they have just seen their shares plummet. The Chief Financial Officer of DoCoMo, Kazuto Tsubouchi spoke of how his company and Apple Incorporated were engaging in parleys regarding cooperation in the sale of iPhone handsets.

Bloomberg reports that NTT DoCoMo's CFO, Kazuto Tsubouchi said in his interview with SankeiBiz, "There are compelling reasons for Apple and his company to reach an agreement. For Apple, it doesn’t make business sense not to allow Japan’s largest wireless carrier to sell the iPhone, while DoCoMo wants to be able to sell most popular handsets."

The only last minute detail that now needs to be ironed out is the timing of the hard sell. While the preliminary odds and ends of negotiation have been settled ultimately the question is whether Apple has any choice other than opting for Japan’s pride, DoCoMo. 

Apple meanwhile is keeping its options open. It is also looking to China Mobile in an effort to conquer the Asian market. By making these two humongous companies, one in Japan and the other in China, its carriers, it wants to enrich its coffers. And it has a right to, being the world’s most innovative company in high tech matters. It comes close to giving its rival Samsung a run for its money.

Inspired by the solid vision of Steve Jobs (a biopic of whom was recently made) Apple has seen its ups and downs. CEO Tim Cook is there to steer it in the right direction for now. How he fares in the far off times is again a matter of speculation.
