iPhone controls almost half of Japanese smartphone market According to an Impress report, the Apple iPhone owns about 46 percent of the entire Japanese smartphone market, with the iPhone 3GS controlling 21.4 percent and the older iPhone 3G controlling 24.6 percent.
Domestic smartphone sales have taken a giant hit thanks to the Apple devices, with the Sharp's Windows Mobile-based Advanced W-ZERO3 losing half of its market share in just one year, falling to third place.

77 percent of iPhone users use data for over 30 minutes every day, with Android users a distant second at 66.8 percent. WinMo users are even farther behind at 54.6 percent.

looks like they are only using data from the fourth and fifth carriers in share. Where is the data from the big carriers. Seems like a strange data set to base assumptions on. Like using T-Mobile data alone to judge which smartphone is most popular.
