    Anyone who questions the iphone's gaining popularity in japan should have been around tokyo with me for the past week with the iphone 4.

    Rarely when I took it out did people not comment or ask to see it and in japan for a japanese to ask a foreigner he does not know to see his phone is a big deal.

    They did not release many here and the demand is very high. If apple is so interested in new markets, they should send a few phones over here. :)

    It was funny to see the same attitude and frustration with softbank as we have in the US with att. The iphone is not on the best carriers there either.

    Same thing happened to me

    Same thing happened to me in the USA when I got my wifi iPad on the day it came out. Everyone thought I was a celebrity!

    And just imagine if you had the (still unreleased) white iPhone over there! What a scene it would have been!
