errr...I'm not sure where those numbers are coming from but the numbers I see is that the iPhone has a ~72% market share in smartphones in Japan which comes up to be about 4.9% cellphone market share in total. Now, if you have newer numbers than I do (April 2010 I believe) I would definitely want to see it as I'm very interested to see how the landscape is changing.

As for the Pentax colours, I don't see the colours taking off outside of Japan but if they do wish to grab a larger market share outside of Japan, it would be nice (imo) if they would create some more solid colours. The colours they have right now seems either a little pastel like or just slightly off making some of the colours cheap looking. Oh well, this is probably just my bias speaking though. I'm sure they know what they are doing. I would welcome more colours into Canada though...
My numbers came from a Tokyo 2.0 / MobileMonday affair, I probably last went at around the same time (April). Though I suppose I should be ready to discount the hyperbole I hear there, because I once heard someone claim that mobile handsets and services was as large as the petroleum industry! 8^D

I know what you mean about the colours. Not exactly sexy. More .. preschool than then should be. But then who am I to judge, I'm a guy, resurfacing every SLR I get my hands on....
