KDDI Corp. (9433) will begin selling Apple Inc.’s iPhone 5 in the first quarter of 2012, The Nikkei learned Thursday.
The deal will allow the Japanese telecom firm to offer the latest version of the popular smartphone, ending Softbank Corp.’s (9984) exclusive deal with Apple in Japan and possibly shaking up the cell phone market.

If this is indeed true, hallelujah! I have hated SoftBank since day one – the network performance is beyond crap and I hate the way SB does business.
I will switch back to AU in a heartbeat!
