This is an article from FOXNews.com from today: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,501927,00.html "Apple's iPhone is a hit everywhere in the world except for Japan. It turns out that Apple's video-playing, music-downloading, motion-sensing handset is just too, well, backward for the Japanese market. In fact, the iPhone is such a flop in the Land of the Rising Sun that it's being given away free with a 2-year contract, Wired News reports. Adding insult to injury is the fact that carrier charges are a lot cheaper in Japan than they are in the U.S., and Apple hasn't learned to compete. Few Japanese want to pay $60 per month to use a phone that can't shoot video, receive TV signals or text-message photos. "The pricing has been completely out of whack with market reality," one expert on the Japanese cell-phone market tells Wired News. "I think they [Apple and its partners overseas] are in the process of adjusting to local conditions."
