Japanese Consumers Clamoring for iPhone 6
According to new reports out of Asia this week, Japanese consumers are buoyantly enthusiastic about the pending release of Apple's next-gen iPhone.
Expected to launch later this month in Japan, the large-screen iPhone 6 caters to the changing tastes of the Japanese consumer base. With phablets an increasingly hotter commodity across Asia, iPhone 6 may see a sales surge that puts iPhone 5s sales to shame in the mobile-tech savvy Japanese market.
A recent survey from MMD finds that 35.7% of consumers probed plan to buy a new iPhone 6. Even more will take the plunge if the eagerly awaited iPhone 6 delivers a model featuring the rumored extra large screen size.
Although the survey didn't delve into consumer interest pertaining to iWatch, Japan is a fast-emerging market for wearables and is expected to drive iWatch adoption across Asia when the inaugural Apple smartwatch is finally released.
