iPhone Hobbled by High Prices in Japan, Lack of 3G in India(September 17, 2008 WIRED)
Apple’s iPhone may be giving competitors a run for their money in North America but when it comes to three of the biggest telecom markets in Asia — Japan, India and China — the company seems to be coming up lame.
The latest sales figures suggest the Jesus phone is struggling to find new converts in Japan. Not far away in India (the second largest telecom market after China) sales of the device are also lackluster thanks to prices that are pushing seven Benjamins for the entry level 8-GB version. And Apple has yet to finalize a deal with Chinese telecom carrier, China Mobile, to bring the iPhone to the People’s Republic.
I think that there are two reasons why iPhone cannot increase sales.
- Too high pricing.
- The function that is attached to the mobile phone of Japan is not provided about iPhone.
I think that the cause that iPhone cannot increase sales is not to localize iPhone for several countries.

iPhone 3Gs Now Outnumber First Generation iPhones(August 26, 2008 TechCrunch)
Despite a weak battery and questions about how fast it connects to 3G networks , some time in the next week more than 6 million iPhone 3Gs will be in people’s hands around the world. What that means is that the second generation device has outsold the original iPhone just seven weeks after going on sale.
Recently, there seems to be no good news concerning iPhone as long as news is seen in Japan.
– Problem of weakness of battery
– Problem at network speed
– Increasing sales might fall.
I hear that the number of sales of iPhone3G will already have exceeded sales of first generation iPhones however.
And, it is expected that sales of iPhone will be increased.
Happening next if this iPhone can spread more widely is a big wave of the application business.

Apple shuts OpenClip: No more copy-and-paste(August 25, 2008 CNET)
Well, that didn’t take long. As soon as people started to get excited about open-source OpenClip, and its ability to bring copy-and-paste functionality to the iPhone, Apple found a way to shut it down with its 2.1 firmware.
The iPhone user seems can do nothing but wait until the copy-and-paste functionality is installed in iPhone by Apple.

Developer creates copy-paste tech for iPhone(August 20, 2008 CNET)
One of the common complaints about Apple’s iPhone–and one that did not get solved with the launch of the iPhone 3G–is the lack of a copy-paste function. An independent developer, Zac White, recently unveiled his open-source solution: OpenClip, a standard for other iPhone application developers.
Why cannot Apple put copy & paste function on iPhone?
It is still a mystery.
Does Apple develop the mechanism that the user is surprised more?
Or, does Apple think that they don’t need to put Copy & Paste on iPhone?
I want to expect that Apple have been developing the function of a new copy & paste.

Yahoo Keitai(Mobile) shop is a site where purchase and the model change in the Softbank cellular phone can be done online.
Online sales of iPhone 3G were begun in Japan.
How much person buys iPhone online?
Moreover, are on-line sales of iPhone done in the world?
It is interesting.

iPhone 3G network issues frustrating early adopters(July 23,2008 CNET News.com)
Network problems appear to be frustrating iPhone 3G users in their first two weeks with the phone.
The article on the network is not so seen as long as I know though iPhone 3G sees the article that it is not easy to use it in Japan.
Has the problem to the iPhone 3G network environment happened also in Japan?
