Apple Reportedly Close to Making Deals with China Mobile and NTT DoCoMo

About 800 million new customers will have access to the iPhone

Almost every carrier in the world was aching to get their hands on the iPhone each time a new version launched going back to the original debut of the device. However, there were a couple notable holdouts that weren't interested in carrying the iPhone. To those major holdouts include China Mobile and Japan's NTT DoCoMo.

Bloomberg reports that Apple is now on the verge of making a deal with both China Mobile and DoCoMo opening the iPhone up to millions of new customers. With the expected unveil of next generation iPhones tomorrow, Apple and China Mobile are reportedly near deal according to a person familiar with negotiations. Apple is also reportedly close to signing a deal with DoCoMo according to people familiar with that negotiation.

If those two deals are finalized Apple will have access to 800 million new customers for the iPhone. China Mobile has 740 million customers on its own with DoCoMo boasting 62 million customers. Those new customers can go a long way towards helping Apple grow market share in the face of stiff competition from Samsung.

Apple could add a matter transporter function to the iPhone 6 and some analyst would be complaining that it only operates on WiFi when they were expecting it to use LTE. Business Insider pointed to a set of CNN charts which show that, typically, the AAPL stock price ...

In a new report, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said not to expect the redesigned Lightning connector or power adaptor to feature as part of the iPhone 6’s package, quoting cost reasons. The new Lightning connector was intriguing in that it was reversible on both ends, including a specially-designed USB connector so that it could be inserted both ways up. The power adaptor was admittedly less exciting, and mirrored the form factor of the chargers seen in Australia. As the com ...
