One of the main reasons the Japanese weren't so into the iPhone was,
from what I remember of article, the fact that the iPhone couldn't
copy and paste, which they thought totally backwards.
The new iPhone 3.0 OS upgrade now includes that functionality.
Will that change adoption rates in Japan?

For those who haven't already heard - there are a fair few folk saying
that the Wired piece has rather a lot of selective quoting and
misrepresentation of what folk actually said.

See http://tinyurl.com/anklow for example. Google will find you more
pointers I'm sure.

Cheers,
