I was lucky enough to be in Japan last year over New Years.  Unfortunately, my wife asked, when I told her I was going to the Apple Store in the middle of the night to try and be in line to buy a Fukubukuro and she asked, "Do we need anything that might be in it" and I had to say no, so I didn't go.   Been kicking myself ever since.   Maybe next New Years (2016).  It is great fun.   All stores, almost, have these "grab bags" and sometimes you can get some good deals.  But...
This goes to show that the companies that make their own distinct products do better than those who make "commodity" products.  Android phone makers don't make a lot of money because there is not a lot to really distinguish them from each other, except price.  So price goes down the toilet which means little or no profit (vs the effort involved).  Same with Windows vs Mac OS.   Anybody and their dog (including you) can build a Windows machine.  Again, nothing really to...
It is the mass that kills you. Takes more energy to get it rolling the more mass you have.

Would be nice if it supported plain old IMAP mail accounts.
The times I have been in Japan I have seen more iPads than Android tablets in the wild.  I suspect China and SE Asia are different from Japan/Hong Kong.
I wish Apple allowed no-charge IAP (it solves certain problems), but alas, the "Free" price tier does not exist in iTunes Connect for IAP.  (As of a month ago at least, and I submitted the request to Apple to allow this several years ago).
Always good to have multiple sources for your parts and to keep your suppliers on their toes due to competition for your business.   Sole suppliers are not great if you can avoid it.
 Which is why Apple does not mention it at all in their marketing.   The people talking about it are the tech geeks and stuff.
