NTT DOCOMO happens to be Japan’s biggest carrier. And Apple has just made a pact with it regarding its iPhone 5S and 5C. Apple will be launching the twin iPhone set in the Japanese market. This is largely due to an increment in the number of LTE bands. Thanks to this arrangement Apple’s iPhones will be supported by carriers in various other nations to boot. The increase in bandwidth ratio means that in the USA, Verizon and AT&T will get Apple’s iPhones on their systems.

Meanwhile, in the UK, a unit iPhone model will be sufficient for EE, Vodafone and Three. However, any negotiations with the biggest one of them all, China Mobile have not paid off. 

Nevertheless, Apple is not one to back down from a challenge. It does have plans to launch iPhones in the Sino-verse. This will take place simultaneously with debut events in among other places the United States, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Singapore, the UK and of course Japan.

Kaoru Kato, President and CEO of NTT DOCOMO Inc., said, “We’re thrilled to offer the incredible new iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c to our customers. We know our customers will enjoy the amazing experience of iPhone on DOCOMO’s high-quality network.”

NTT DOCOMO has over 60 million loyal customers and is the largest carrier in Japan. However, there have been certain rivals that are a thorn in its side. KDDI and SoftBank are the two most obvious competitors that are currently giving it a tough time. With the Apple team wheeling and dealing with NTT DOCOMO, it will re-earn its old spot with no effort.  

Apple CEO Tim Cook said, “NTT DOCOMO has built an impressive network, the largest in the nation with over 60 million customers. We’ve enjoyed tremendous success with iPhone in Japan, in fact it’s the top selling smartphone in the country, and we look forward to delivering iPhone into even more customers’ hands through NTT DOCOMO.”
