The Apple iPhone strengthened last year its position as the best-selling smartphone in Japan. During 2011 7.25 million iPhones were sold, reaching a 30% of the smartphone market share. Approximately 5.7% of the Japanese population bought a new iPhone last year. Impressive numbers!
The iPhone is the best-selling smartphone but if you look at the data of which operating system is dominating the market you can see that 69% of Japanese smartphones uses Android. On the other hand, “traditional” Japanese keitai still control 43% of the general cell phone market in Japan, where Sharp and Fujitsu sell almost as many keitais as Apple sells smartphones.
