Dear reader Pravin tips us to this story claiming that we’ve been meeting with Japanese wireless carriers (I’ll confirm that) but that iPhone might not be so popular in Japan because they’ve already got some really cool phones there. This is just what people said about iPhone in Europe, too. And how’d that work out? Pretty well, I’d say. Trust me, iPhone will be a smash hit in Japan. As Cringely likes to say, You read it here first.
