Japan's KDDI to sell new iPhone: Apple

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's second-largest mobile phone carrier, KDDI, will sell Apple's new iPhone, the California-based company said at a presentation for the iPhone 4S.

The plan for the new smartphone, which will go on sale starting on October 14, will end rival carrier Softbank's reign as the sole Japanese provider of the hugely popular gadget.
