People around the world who have been waiting to get their hands on the latest version of the iPhone wont have to wait much longer.
iPhone 4 will go on sale in the following European countries beginning Friday, July 30: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. It will also become available for the first time in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore. You can pick one up at Apple stores, online or through authorized Apple resellers. The phone launched one month ago in the U.S., Germany, Japan, the U.K. and France.
The phone will no doubt sell well in most of these nations. It will be interesting to see if Apple is plagued by shortages or if “Antennagate” will raise as much of a ruckus as it has in the U.S. media.
This is the fastest global rollout ever for Apple, which is set to debut the iPhone in a total of 87 countries by the end of Q4. International sales numbers have been getting better and better for Apple, which the company reported in its earnings call last week. Apples new tablet computer, the iPad, just went on sale in nine more countries last Friday.
