Operating profit for the quarter rose 4.4% to Y227.0 billion from Y217.4 billion a year earlier, while revenue fell 2.3% to Y1.071 trillion from Y1.097 trillion. President Ryuji Yamada said the company is well on its way to meeting its full fiscal year earnings targets. In the next fiscal year, DoCoMo “will make sure to capture the wave of smartphones,” he said. DoCoMo, whose smartphone lineup includes Samsung Electronic Co.’s Galaxy S and Sony Ericsson’s Xperia, said it sold 1.26 million smartphone handsets in the nine months through December.
With the lineup expanding in recent months, Yamada said DoCoMo now expects its smartphone sales for the year through March to top 2.5 million units, far above its initial target of 1.3 million units. In the next fiscal year, the company aims to more than double the figure to about 6 million units, or about one-third of DoCoMo’s total handset sales. Yamada added that DoCoMo’s sales of smartphones may surpass those of conventional cellphones in the fiscal year through March 2013. via Total Telecom
