LTE technology is the latest and most coveted technology in the field of mobile devices and it is expected that Apple would be releasing the upcoming devices equipped with this technology. According to the sources, the next model of the Apple tablet, iPad 3, with LTE would be released during the summer of 2012 while iPhone 5 equipped with this technology would be released in the fall of 2012. According to the same source, Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has already reached an agreement with Apple to distribute these devices on the above schedule in Japan. If this is really so, we can also expect these devices to be available in other parts of the word during the same time.
Previously, it was told that Apple’s demand for large sales volume and refusal to allow the carrier to add its own applications had resulted in a deadlock during negotiations. Now it seems that some sort of agreement has been reached at by the executives. Previously, DoCoMo’s rival, Softbank, had the rights of distributing Apple products in Japan but this contract has ended with iPhone 4S. If the contract between Apple and DoCoMo remains successful, this would be the first time that DoCoMo would be distributing Apple devices in Japanese market.
