Is the iPhone really a failure in Japan?

Every once in a while some naïve American journalist hears that the iPhone is a flop in Japan because Japan is cell phone utopia/Japanese people are robots/etc. The latest attempt is from Wired, entitled "Why the Japanese Hate the iPhone." Apparently not only is this not true, but the author made up some of the quotes. That link, an original article from Apple Insider (a member of the Apple rumors community), also gives a much more nuanced and interesting look at the Japanese cell phone market and Apple's position in it.
