But now analysts told the WSJ that they estimate that demand in Japan has fallen to a third of what it was initially and analysts are now expecting fewer iPhone sales. There's no supply shortage, and the iPhone 3G is readily available in Apple and Softbank stores and other outlets.
Here's how the WSJ sums up the situation: "A spokesman for Softbank, which has 19.5 million wireless subscribers, said the iPhone continues to be popular, but declined to provide details. A spokesman for Apple Japan declined to comment. Sales have been slowed by the iPhone's relatively high price and the fact that Japan is already home to some of the world's most advanced cellphones."
