The iPhone Debuts in Japan

Last night while America slept, Apple’s new iPhone 3G hit the ground running in Japan. Here’s the most famous TV personality in the country, Mino Monta, putting the device through its paces on the air this morning:

More than 1,000 people waited through the night in front of one Tokyo store to get their hands on the iPhone. In another location, they extended more than half a mile from a store’s entrance. People have been talking about the phone for weeks and deciding among friends who would get white and who would get black.

Softbank group president Masayoshi Son, whose company is the exclusive provider of the iPhone in Japan, said that “this year marks the first year when cellphones will become Internet machines.”

We here at The Kelly Letter agree, and that’s why we own shares of Apple. We’re in good company with Mr. Son and John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins who said the iPhone represents a bigger opportunity than the PC.

Go get yours!
