Apple released the iPhone 4S in seven countries on October 14th and at that time they also made it clear that an additional 22 countries would be getting the handset on October 28th. And well, it looks like those additional countries now have the iPhone 4S available for pre-order.
Whilst queues didn’t quite meet those seen in the US and in many of the other launch countries, customers still camped outside stores and carrier outlets to get their handsets before others in their respective countries.
The original seven countries included Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the UK and US. And now, for those additional countries, those include — Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.
AsiaOne reports that SingTel customers in Singapore that had secured one of the more than 10,000 slots to buy the new phone were able to purchase it at the telco’s Suntec Singapore event from today to Sunday. All slots were snapped up yesterday.
After all, it would be less than ideal if you decided to go the in-store route on the 28th — to have them run out of stock before you get to the front of the line.
