IPhone Now Fifth Most Popular Phone in Japan

A metric for skeptics who predicted the iPhone would fail in Japan: Apple’s handset is now the fifth-best-selling phone in the country, with 12.2 percent of the market, according to IDC.

It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
