Roll em out apple. As I've said, 3 device lines really matter, iPhone line, note line, and galaxy s line. The rest fill in the pie.

This is great news for all those people who couldn't legitimately by iPhones before in their own countries and this at least affords them the opportunity and luxury of being able to walk into a local store and walk out proudly with their new purchase, without having to travel to another country and smuggle it into their own. Interestingly, of all the official countries and markets listed above, sadly, there are no plans for any countries in Africa - one of the largest continents in the world with many emerging economies, maybe they're "racists" because, they obviously don't want to include any country in Africa. And upon researching Apple's website, the only official African country listed for the previous iPhone 5 is South Africa. See here:
hmmmmmmm - must be that these phones are too good for those people in those countries.

Here in ethiopia iphones are everywhere, but nearly all of the people who own iphones have relatives abroad especially in the USA or the middle east.

Yes, it's really not fair. I have a friend from Nigeria and anyone with an iPhone there purchased it abroad. It really speaks to an unspoken bias that the company has about where it wants its product sold.
