Well, ladies and gentlemen, here were are at the end of April pretty much exactly where we were at the beginning: 6 iPhone launches on the board representing the US, UK, Germany, France, Ireland, and Austria.
But wait, who's that on deck now, eh? That's right, Canada's Rogers Wireless has officially announced that they're #7, bringing Poppa Jobs' pocket universe dent'er to the Great White North circa "sometime later this year".
Of course, announced and launched are two different things, and no less than 7 other countries, including Singapore, Mexico, the Netherlands, Australia, India, Italy, and Belgium are rumored to be hot on Canada's heels for launching, and bragging, rights.
Quick check of the PhoneDifferent.com scorecard:
|Europe||North Am.||South Am||Asia||Africa||Oceania||Antarctica|
Still some slim pickings, but May leads right into WWDC which should kick June, and our little game of iPhone Risk, into high gear. If iPhone 3G drops (especially 25 million of them!), all bets are off and we'll be in for one Jobs of a ride!
So who's next? Canada? One of the rumored other 7? Someone out of the blue? What do you think?
