Ah, finally, some date to look forward :))

KrispyKrink says:

So, if I drive an hour or two to Mexico I can buy an IPhone 5s instead of waiting 5 1/2 weeks that Apple is quoting me on shipping?

ame says:

They can't even get stock of the 5S right now in stores, so they think in 3 more weeks they're gonna meet demand in the rest of the world?

Stevenojobs says:

Maybe that's because they keep the majority of the production right now to fill those country that you cannot buy one in the U.S...

joshrocker says:

Yes! I get a little annoyed every time is see them expand to more carriers and now countries. Fulfill your current orders first.

paulo_mealha says:

According to one of our carrier's website, the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are already in stock in Malta:

http://www.go.com.mt/gomobile/phones_template.cfm?xmlFileName=phones/20a...

I cannot confirm since I haven't visited their shops yet 'cos I'm with another carrier and I've bought mine online for a much cheaper price. But hey, it says "Now in stock"!

Briangeo11 says:

Bob Q says:

Great, but the Gold iPhone 5s also hard to get right now.
