DoCoMo looking to get iPad 3G contract for Japan ahead of local iPhone carrier

At least, that’s according to TradingMarkets.com:

“After losing the exclusive sales rights for the iPhone in Japan to… Softbank, DoCoMo appears bent on beating out its rival this time around.”

Maybe so, but I can’t see it succeeding—Softbank is way too motivated and agile to let DoCoMo get its hands on Apple’s latest lust bauble.

It’s clear DoCoMo wants a slice of the iAction - see my brief chat with them about the iPhone 3G here - but getting the iPad seems unlikely at this point.

Anyway, we’ll see soon enough…
