Introduction

Apple Inc. designs, manufactures, and markets personal computers, portable digital music players, and mobile communication devices and sells a variety of related software, services, peripherals, and networkingsolutions.

Apple’s most successful product to date has been the iPod which has sold over 163 million units to date. As the market for digital music players has become saturated, Apple has developed a break through smart phone called the iPhone. Although many doubted Apple’s ability to gain market share in an increasingly competitive and complex market, they have succeeded in selling over 21.17million units in only 2 years. In comparison, it took Apple 3.75 years to sell that many iPods. Relatively speaking, the iPhone is far more important to Apple than the iPod. The iPhone‘s addressable market is considerably larger than that of the iPod. Although traditional mobile phone sales still dominate the market, a clear shift is under way. Mobile phone sales for the first quarter of 2009 totaled269.1 million, a drop of 9.4% over the same period last year. Smart phone sales for the first quarter of 2009 were 36.4 million, representing a 12.7% increase over the first quarter of 2008.

The iPhone is available in 88 different countries throughout the world, representing an addressable market of 760 million users. Entering the Japan’s market is not easy, because Apple has to choose from 8mobile phone companies to choose, that are Au, EMOBILE Limited, IYOUIT, Index Holdings, SoftBank Mobile, KDDI, NTT DoCoMo and Willcom.
