    I'm reaching out to you fellow readers to see if any of you have come across recent information about the breakdown by country that is using the most iPhones.

    I'm looking to have my iPhone app translated into more languages outside of English and wanted to see which countries has the biggest iPhone penetration.

    I heard from an Apple employee that France was #2 behind the US?

    Apologies for my lack of Google skills. Thanks in advance.

    I would think the UK would be 2nd behind the U.S., but that's based only on the fact that the UK has had the iPhone longer than any other country than the U.S., and also that I see a lot of them around London!

    I'd be more interested in a breakdown by city - country is just a bit too broad. Especially in countries with broad social/economic situations.

    For example ... I see iPhones EVERYWHERE in Toronto. But my hometown (not too too small, but kinda out in the "boonies") seems to have way less iPhones kicking around.

    I doubt we'll see this kind of information any time soon, though.

    Well, from this list it appears that French might be a good one to start with. It will be effective for not only France, but Canada - Although Canadian French is a bit different than France - French is it not?

    I guess the next step is to find a list where the total number of iPhone's sold, because it's difficult to tell between the #2 spot which is tied three ways - who is currently in the lead so that your App can be more effective.
