Apple COO Speaks: iPhone 3G Launches in 20 More Countries

During Apple's Q3 conference call Monday, along with App Store updates, Apple's Chief Operating Officer, Tim Cook, announced that the iPhone 3G would launch in 20 more countries/regions on August 22nd, some six weeks after the initial 22 country launch back on July 11th.

While we've previously known that some 70+ countries would launch during 2008, we still don't know which of the remaining 50 will be included in the second wave (or whether carrier and iTunes servers will remain up and running this time!).

Guesses anyone?
