NTT Docomo denies reports about deal with Apple

A Nikkei Business report that Apple and NTT Docomo have reached a deal to sell an LTE-enabled iPhone 5 and the iPad 3 in Japan next year, has been turned down by the Japanese carrier.

The report by Nikkei Business claims that NTT Docomo's president Kiyoyuki Tsujimura and vice president Takashi Yamada hit the deal during a recent meeting with Apple chief executive Tim Cook, but a Docomo spokesperson denied the report saying the company was not in any specific talks with the iPhone or the iPad.
