mudimba writes "The iPhone 3GS 32GB is currently the best selling phonein Japan (the 16GB version came in at number nine). This is in stark contrast to reports from earlier this year that the Japanese hate the iPhone. Nobody is sure what specific features caused the change of heart, though it is speculated that video capture and voice control might be part of the answer. When the 3G iPhone first came out it saw a spike in sales, but unlike the 3GS it was unable to outsell locally-made handsets."
If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature.
If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
