A deal might be in the works for a new partner carrier for Apple’s iPhones if a mutually beneficial arrangement can be had with NTT DoCoMo, says its President Katoru Katō, according to Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, which added that a DoCoMo iPhone might not happen soon since the firm is only now in preliminary talks to bring Apple’s popular device onto its smartphone network. As it now stands, Apple requires partner carriers to sell a predetermined amount of iPhones yearly and Kato believes that DoCoMo can hit that number so long as handsets account for 20 to 30 percent of the company’s overall smartphone sales.
