こんにちは (Konichiwa · hello)
Acording to a little survey, 91% of Japanese don´t want an iPhone. Sure?, I don´t think so.
iPhone 3G will change mobile phones foundations, and i think everybody agree. Japanese are waiting for the iPhone with desire as in the rest of the world. Maybe Japan is a little bit special market for this gadget, they have great handsets and much more features built in their phones than in the rest of the countries, they pay the subway, order an pay a meal, use internet everywhere with affordable data plans… but even this things it is not enough to beat the fashionable and cool iPhone for many people in Japan. Of course the sales of this device will not be as incredible as in other countries like USA or UK, but it will be better than people think.
I have some friends in Japan, and i have made my own survey to know what japanese youth really think about the iPhone 3G.
