Is Apple (AAPL -0.5%) finally close to scoring an iPhone deal with NTT DoCoMo (DCM)? The president of the top Japanese carrier, which has been bleeding share to iPhone-carrying SoftBank (SFTBF.PK) and KDDI, says his company is willing to sell the iPhone if it can reach a mutually beneficial deal. DoCoMo and Apple have reportedly been at odds in the past over Apple's purchase requirements and DoCoMo's insistence on pre-installing some of its apps. (China Mobile)
