iPhone 4S to Hit More Territories by November 11th

 

iPhone4S

It’s been almost one month since the iPhone 4S was announced. Apple is making sure that other territories get it soon after.

The iPhone 4S, which has been a hit in the US so far will officially arrive in Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea on November 11th, Apple has announced. Pre-orders begin November 4th.

This is good news for consumers and carriers in the region as we’ve already heard that the device is popular in Hong Kong’s grey market, selling easily for at least a couple thousand dollars (US dollars, that is). It may kill the grey market value, but at least people will be able to get their iPhone for a reasonable price.

Here’s the short version:

Beginning Friday, November 11, iPhone 4S will be available in Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea. iPhone 4S is available today in 29 countries around the world and will be available in more than 70 countries by the end of the year.
