Japanese retailer SoftBank are giving away the 8GB iPhone in a bid to increase take up after terrible sales. According to a report today in the Guardian the low spec of the iPhone in comparison to other Japanese handsets is the problem:

there’s no video function or multimedia messaging, the camera is poor and – with the exception of any about-to-be-launched brand, specific apps – there’s no TV tuner, which is standard on many Japanese handsets. Just one competitor is the Panasonic P905i with its 3″ TV, 3G, GPS, 5.1 megapixel camera and Wii-style motion sensors for games. 

Japan presents a problem market for the firm because of hostility to non-domestic brands.

I am not really a fan of the iPhone as it endorses and supports Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) technology, and completely blocks free software.

  1. “Japan presents a problem market for the firm because of hostility to non-domestic brands.”

    It’s not hostility to non-domestic brands, why would people buy a crap phone when they can access to better ones?

    that reporter almost sounds racist, “FUCKING HOSTILE TO NON-DOMESTIC JAPS”
