There's news out today about that. You've got to be doing something right, if the Japanese, among the most intelligent and most demanding buyers have made your IPHONE5 the top selling of all brands in Japan. Not only outselling Samsung and LG, but also even Sony and others in their home country. PART OF REASON is the IOS software system of Apple's phones, no other brand has it, its more secure, easier to use, easier to program apps. for in many foreign languages (even in Japanese) than are Android run phones. Even if Nokia and Sony and Samsung can make a phone with hardware specs. quite good, they can't make a smartphone as reliable, as secure and works as easily and well as Apple's top model, and the Japanese are able to pay a premium price. Softbank, the seller of Apple phones in Japan, reported 100% increase in profits last year.
like i've said, we'be heard enough shilling from you 'squeezetracker'......for you, it's going to be tough to regain any credibility even if you change your alias......you stick out like a sore thumb.....and a sore thumb you are.....lol
This is not "shilling" sir. The article appears on Wall Street Cheat Sheet today, and another magazine. Apple is now the #1 selling smartphone brand in Japan, beating out a very crowded field. And Apple didn't do it by low price. I believe the Japanese appreciate attractive design and especially that the IPHONE's software it simply works better (than the SONY Android powered phone).
That says it all: In the most Technologically Advanced country in the world, with among the most educated population, APPLE IS NOW THE #1 SELLING SMARTPHONE. They may not have 51% market share in Japan yet like in USA, but Apple has surpassed even Sony in its home country.
