iPhone ranked No. 1 in Japanese smartphone survey, Blackberry last

The iPhone will debut in Japan, one of the world’s biggest telecommunications markets, on July 11th and people here seem to be pretty excited about it already.

In a recent survey on the popularity of smartphones in Japan, 57.9% of all respondents replied they are interested in the Apple model the most. The Blackberry ranked 6th (and last) with just 8.8%.

Details can be found here (in English). The results must be regarded with caution though. The survey was conducted by iShare [JP], the geniuses responsible for last month’s survey on the iPhone’s chances on the Japanese market.
