Apple’s iPhone 4 will be available in 17 more countries this Friday, July 30. iPhone 4 features FaceTime, which makes video calling as easy as one tap, Apple’s new Retina display, the highest resolution display ever built into a phone, resulting in stunning text, images and video, and a beautiful all-new design of glass and stainless steel that is the thinnest smartphone in the world.

Beginning this Friday, customers can purchase iPhone 4 in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. iPhone 4 will be available for purchase through Apple’s retail and online stores and Apple Authorized Resellers.


So, unlike iPad, iPhone 4 will launch internationally on time. iPad had several delays before its international launch probably because of the high sales of iPad, which were more than Appleā€™s expectations. But this time Apple is ready to provide iPhone 4 on time.

Apple had originally announced that they would launch iPhone 4 in 18 more countries this month but South Korea was omitted due to their government not approving it. As Steve jobs said in the recent press conference:

Also on July 30th, we’re going to bring the iPhone to 17 more countries, with the omission of South Korea. So that’s the update on iPhone 4.

A report also claims that Apple has not even submitted iPhone 4 for approval to the South Korean government yet. Whatever the case is , iPhone 4 is currently launching in 17 more countries and would launch in many more countries in the coming months. But we would not see the white iPhone 4 till later this year because of its manufacturing issues.
