Though sales of the iPhone in Japan didn’t go quite as well as it did in other smartphone-centric and iPhone hype-infected markets, all hope isn’t lost yet.
Softbank Mobile Corp. has finally scored its first major corporate customer for the iPhone in Japan, and it’s a management and technology consultancy firm called BearingPoint.
Japan-based BearingPoint, which aims to improve the productivity of its consultants and help them get information more easily, has ordered at least 1,000 units of the iPhone from Softbank Mobile Corp.
In reality, the BearingPoint iPhone orders don’t necessarily mean that iPhone sales in Japan are going to go through the roof in the next few months, but at least it’s heading in the right direction.
