April is almost over and.. still no iPhone for the Middle East. The rumors were wrong. Apple continues to “ignore” a potentially lucrative market.
Recent rumors have indicated that the 3G iPhone, expected in the coming 6 weeks or so, will be sold unlocked in markets like Italy and Belgium. India will soon get the iPhone too. But no word from anyone on the Arab region.
These days, I sometimes sit in meetings with clients, with more than 2 or 3 iPhones in the room! Saudi Arabia alone could swallow a gigantic number of iPhones. But no. Apple’s attention is elsewhere.
I would guess that there is a possibility of a 3G iPhone release in the region soon. The competitive situation is getting hotter for Apple. The iPhone had only modest success in Europe. So Apple might see a good reason to accelerate the release of its device in the Middle East.
Does anyone have info on this?
