I don't agree entirely with the aimed at women thing. I think Canon is going for the young party goers and weekend hobbyists, male or female. Though it would be interesting to see the demographic breakdown of sales!
Just repeating what Canon has publicly stated, that the target demographic was women.

A few reasons it's doing so well in Japan (based on living here) -

1. Canon's advertising a marketing campaigns are effective, when somethin new comes out you know all about it!
2. Japanese people love new gadgets, especially cameras.
3. It's small - they love small and cute things that come in multiple colors.

Exactly. Small powerful, trendy and great marketing behind it. I am sure it will do well in other parts of Asia as well.

I won't be getting one, and I do find it funny when I see pros sticking it on super tele zooms like the 500, 600 etc. I think they were just playing with it. At least I hope they were. And as for the AF it is slow even when using the viewfinder, as someone already described it hunts, focuses, goes hunting again and then locks.
