The best part of the wire article in in the comments, especially from japan
& u.s.

"You know, It seems pretty obvious to me from the comments why no one in
Japan would want an Iphone and in fact, I live in USA and I really see no
point either." ,
"Why the Japanese/Chinese/Koreans and people in other Asian countries hate
iPhone?", from personal observation, many young Chinese like it (most in it
"Gid: Why hasn't Japanese cell phones penetrated the western market? They
have been using a different system since the beginning while western phones
have been stuck with plain old GSM. That is why. Besides, I believe that one
Japanese/Swedish phone is making good progress in the west." , this is not
true, Japanese phone try to sales well in china in past ten years, and
never succeed, while nokia and moto are extremely successfull here (now
moto declined for months)
Also a report from alsha is interesting, among the japan iPhone user, 5% are
extremely satisfied, while 2.5% satisfied, but no number on who explicitly
express "No".
