By on

Softbank, the third-biggest mobile operator in Japan, has announced that it will be selling the iPhone, after agreeing with Apple to sell them by the end of the year.

Spokesperson Fumihiro Ito has said that they do not have any other information, but it is also unknown if it is an exclusive contract or not.

The new deal is a huge coup to the group, afer trying to lure subscribers to its bigger rivals NTT DoCoMo and KDDI with low prices and aggressive marketing.

NTT DoCoMo has also been seen as another candidate to the iPhone contract, but its spokesperson declined to comment.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
