iPhone Risk Switzerland

Joking that the iPhone Risk map was getting a little crowded up in Europe... turns out not to be a joke anymore:

Swisscom on Wednesday confirmed it will begin selling Apple's iPhone in Switzerland this year, possibly bolstering a recent report on the matter which also stated that the handset would arrive with video conferencing and other fresh features.

What fresh new features? As if borrowing from Kevin Rose's twitter feed, GPS, bi-direction video iChat Mobile, and mobile TV.

Checking the score board:

  Europe North Am. South Am Asia Africa Oceania Antarctica Total
Launched 5 1 0 0 0 0 0 6
Announced 6 2 15? 3 2 2 0 30
Rumored 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 2
Total 13 3 15? 3 2 2 0 38

Personally, I'm not sold on 2-way iChat yet, or Mobile TV unless Apple can break it out of the carrier-controlled sandbox in which it now languishes. This is a little too close to rumor-regurgitation for now. GPS, on the other hand, seems likely.

What do you think?
