YES! It has begun! New Zealand has the iPhone 3G! Officially on sale as of 12:01 AM local time, the Kiwi's are the first to grab up Stevo's 2nd generation mobile platform.

Shoppers, start your engines. From Oceania, the iPhone will start lighting up Asia, Africa, Europe, East Coast North America, West Coast North America, and finally Hawaii as its march across the globe -- and total Risk triumph concludes. (Well, except for holdouts China and Russia).

Where are you? When will you get it? Let us know your story!
