It can’t get bigger than this in Asia’s mobile industry, and in fact, it’s a business alliance with the potential to shake things up on a global level. Today, the world’s biggest mobile carrier China Mobile, Japan’s No. 1 player NTT Docomo and Korea’s leading telco KT have announced the establishment of a “broad-based business tie-up”.
Details are scarce at this point, but the three telecommunications giants will work together in such areas as LTE infrastructure, smartphone services, software development, roaming services, and international marketing of handsets to multinational corporations.
It looks like geographically, the alliance will be focusing on North East Asia, at least initially.
KT already entered a business partnership with China Mobile last year and also has capital ties with Docomo.
