    i would be more excited if we had a launch date for the UK..... and that it is confirmed as 3g for europe!

    p.s. i love the fact that this article says smart phones are twice as popular in the uk as the US. SURELY that means apple will release their new product in the place where it will be most popular first?! :) lol

    Yeah, the article had a hopeful tint to it. ;)
    Who knows? The UK is always waaay behind America when it comes to technology being released. Maybe Apple doesn't love us as much?;)

    United Kingdom — Population 60,776,238 (July 2007 est.)
    United States — Population: 301,139,947 (July 2007 est.)

    seeing that the population of the US is 4.95 x larger than the UK - so the US has twice as many smart phone users.

    so SURELY this means Apple is releasing a product were there are more potential customers.

    No, it's releasing in its home country. Apple continually craps on its European market when it's really not appropriate. There are more mobile users here than you'd think. I can't find my source but for how many people that exist in the US versus how many do here, the average is MUCH higher here. Almost everybody has a mobile phone here and renews their contracts regularly. This is not as often the case in the US, where the numbers are surprisingly low.

    of COURSE apple will release the iphone in the US for a number of reasons: -

    Population
    It's where they're from

    However, i will repeat what has been said, they do seem to have a habit of p**sing us europeans (particularly the uk - have you looked at the dollar-pound conversion for some products?!) off bigtime.

    We always seem to be the weak relation in the apple chain. I mean, we still haven't even got movies!!!! and we be about 40% more on itunes songs than the US. I think apple should simply be fairer to us, thats all

    No just Apple is way behind in Europe. The cell phone market here is ages ahead (no 3g iPhone in the states because 3g hardly exists hence the more smartphones in the UK).
    I can't wait for the UE courts to crap all over Apple and it's itunes procedures. The deadline is today. I'm gonna get some popcorn.:D
