Top 10 Best Selling Cell Phones in Japan

In October, for the first time ever in Japan, more smartphones were sold than keitais (“traditional” Japanese cell phones). It seems like the Galapagos Syndrome is starting to hit really hard Japanese cell phone manufacturers, that have to compete more and more harder with smartphones developed in the United States and South Korea. The number one cell phone in Japan right now is the Samsung Galaxy, followed by the iPhone 4 with 32 and 16 Gb.

    A lot of people seem to have this Samsung galaxy, must be a nice alternative to an iPhone.

    Personally I’m not fond of smartphones… I like buttons. lol 😉

    Wish they had more keitais here in the UK! UK phones suck.

    Can you tell me your source or give us the exact numbers?
    I wonder if you combine the 16GB and 32GB iPhone, if it goes to #1.
