We'll see ! Time will tell !!
According to bcnranking.jp the 32GB iPhone 3GS is the #1 seller in Japan and the 16GB version is #2. SH-06A and 830P are #3 and #4 respectively. Just thought this might be interesting to some (people who said the iPhone would fail in Japan since keitais are better?) FYI I'm still not saying the iPhone is better though
According to the website the info is taken from sales in Yodobashi, Bic Camera, Best Denki and a few other major retailers in Japan.

Exactly. We saw the iPhone 3G just die off after the first few weeks.Originally Posted by hiallall
Yeah the info references GfK Japan marketing data, so it's accurate.
This would be the influx of early adopters and mad fans updating from their iPhone 3G early; I wouldn't expect this result to last any more than one more week. It's all about volumes - they'd be shipping a huge amount of iPhones to dethrone the SH-06A, which has been the number one seller until this week and has 2.5 times the potential market of the iPhone (based on current market share - docomo 50.6% vs SoftBank 19.3% as of May).
It will probably remain as the top selling phone in SoftBank's ranking for weeks yet, but I'd see it dropping from top overall position later this month.

they will drop just like the 3G

The rainy season started sadly for the keitais. I hope the SH-06A come back to top quickly.
Looks like no Osaifu-Keitai for the masses
Just noticed- poor SH-06A. Big and harsh 'DOWN' sign lol.
The ranking's going to fall for sure- it's just that Apple knows how to sell 'em (most buyers buy phones as soon as they come out if they want one) so it's not surprising it's going to fall soon. You don't see people flooding into stores for iPhone 2Gs anymore
Apple knows how to play the cards....
however looking at previous comments....Apple might have preferred the larger base of docomo.....

Was the Iphone 3G a fail in Japan?
Fail... Not exactly it was good for about 2 weeks. It is just such a "Dumbphone" is all the camera is only 2MP it had such a limited use and marketOriginally Posted by jo_Ny
it did well for a while, but it always keeps poking its head at hte top 10 every so often
its like that annoying neighbors dog that wont stop crapping on your lawn. it comes by every so often just to remind you it exists on your block.
lol... yep, its that sort of nuisance
btw, did you change your name, because that signatrue looks awfully familiar
