Which countries do you think will get the iPhone 5 upon its initial release?


My guess is

USA
Canada
UK
France


They seem to be the usual 4. Anyone think that's right or wrong?

The iPhone 4S launched in 7 countries initially (United States, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan and the United Kingdom). I could quite easily, and am really hoping to, see the same. Unless there is a shortage, then it may be restricted in the US only for a few weeks.

They do have their own navy and they keep threatening to secede. Obviously, they haven't talked to S. Carolina and asked how their secession went. :rolleyes:
Texas isn't it's own country...at least not yet ;)
For some reason, I thought release day would have more countries. I guess China would be too big to be included.

It's possible: the new iPad was launched simultaneously in mid-March in the 7 countries mentioned above by cambookpro as well as in Hong Kong, Singapore and Switzerland...

Those three places have a combined population of 20 million. Not the same as adding China.
Thanks for clarifying! What I meant to say is: it's possible the new iPhone will be launching in additional countries. However, i totally agree with you that an initial launch in China is highly unlikely or rather not going to happen ;)
