In Japan, iPhone makes barely a ripple

In Japan, reaction to Apple’s fancy new “iPhone” is muted, because most of the features have been around for a while on phones at a far lower price point (and third generation wireless capability, which offers faster data transfer rates than Apple’s phone). There are various crummy reasons why the US is so behind in mobile technology. I suspect in a few years we’ll get to where Japan is today. And, of course, much can change in three years, in directions one might never expect.
