Apple today issued a press release officially announcing the release of the iPhone 4 in 17 new countries for this Friday, July 30th. The news is not necessarily considered a surprise, as Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced the launches at the company's iPhone 4 press conference earlier this month.
Apple's iPhone 4 will be available in 17 more countries this Friday, July 30. iPhone 4 features FaceTime, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, Apple's new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video, and a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.

Beginning this Friday, customers can purchase iPhone 4 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. iPhone 4 will be available for purchase through Apple's retail and online stores and Apple Authorized Resellers.
Apple had originally announced at the iPhone 4's introduction in early June that there would be 18 countries included in this round of launches, but Jobs disclosed earlier this month that the South Korean launch has been delayed due to things taking "just a little bit longer to get government approval there."

That claim came as something of a surprise to both carrier partner KT and government officials in that country, however, with a representative from the South Korean communications regulatory agency claiming that Apple hasn't even submitted the device for approval yet.

Enjoy lining up overnight and standing for hours, my international friends. :) I stood in line for 4.5 hours for this one, and while it was fun, I won't be doing that again.

Here in Austria, the first batch is already sold out.

Both T-Mobile Austria and Orange had a limited pre-ordering exclusively for existing customers. Both providers' offers were only up for 48 hours until they were sold out again.

So no lining up here in Austria, since there's no point to it anyways.
