The iPhone is a huge hit in Japan

Tue, Aug 18, 2009


Despite rumors and stories to the contrary, the iPhone has cemented its status as the #1 most popular phone in Japan – an even more impressive feat given the large selection of feature rich phones which envelop the streets of Tokyo and often leave tech enthusiasts in America drooling.

Electronista reports:

Apple’s third iPhone generation has ousted Japan’s own phone manufacturers for the top sales spot in the country, according to market data from Gfk Japan. The 32GB iPhone 3GS was the most popular phone in Japan during July and outsold even more advanced touchscreen phones from the local market, such as the runner-up Sharp SH-06. Of the top ten, the 16GB iPhone 3GS was the only other non-Japanese phone to make the list, occupying ninth place ahead of the Sharp SH001 camera phone.
