DoCoMo Stays Silent

TOKYO -- NTT DoCoMo kept a veil over its expansion plans Wednesday as media reports said it will tie up with America Online to give the two market leaders an edge in grabbing a share of the global wireless Internet market.

Japanese financial daily Nihon Keizai Shimbun said NTT DoCoMo could sign a deal with AOL, the world's largest Internet services provider, as early as August that would offer wireless e-mail and AOL content to cell phone users worldwide.

Japan's titan mobile phone carrier DoCoMo said it is in talks with industry operators worldwide but had no new deals to announce, declining comment on reports of an AOL deal.

AOL Japan did not deny the report, but said: "We are not in a position to make a comment."
