iPod is a hit in Japan

“The iPod is proving a colossal hit on the Japanese electronics and entertainment giant’s own turf. The tiny white machine is catching on as a fashion statement and turning into a cultural icon in Japan, much the same way it won a fanatic following in the United States.”

I am in Japan and when I went out to buy my ipod, I had a hard time getting one—Yodobashi Camera, an electronics giant in Japan, was completely sold out.  I bought the last iPod (a 40GIGer) at a rival store but I had to travel to get it.  Needless to say, it was worth it!

iPod 40 Gig for $406! It is cheap. I should have asked my friend to buy me one, if I know that this is the price for iPod 40G in Japan. He was there for 2 weeks arrived back home last Friday.

hard, how much did you pay for your 40 Gig iPod? Is $406 for 40G a regular price in J.

I paid about 550 for a 40G at Yodobashi in Kawasaki last november or december.
