TOKYO, Nov. 20 (Kyodo) — NTT Docomo Inc. will start selling Apple Inc.'s iPad tablet computer soon, a senior official at the mobile phone carrier said Wednesday.
The company will start dealing it "in the not-too-distant future," Senior Executive Vice President Kazuto Tsubouchi said during an interview with Kyodo News. It will do so by the end of the current fiscal year through next March, according to a company official.
Japan's largest carrier began selling Apple's iPhone smartphones this September, well after competitors KDDI Corp. and Softbank Corp.
While KDDI and Softbank already carry the newest model of the iPad released earlier this month, NTT Docomo has so far said it is "considering" it.
