iPhone 5s, 5c to launch in over 28 more countries starting Oct. 25th

updated 09:25 am EDT, Wed October 9, 2013

Subsequent rollout phase set for November 1st

The iPhone 5s and 5c will launch in over 28 more countries on October 25th, Apple has announced. Italy, Russia, and Spain have been identified as the main launch regions that day, but the list also includes countries like Austria, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, South Korea, Sweden, and Thailand. On November 1st, still another 12-plus countries will be added, including India, Mexico, and Turkey.

Both rollouts are in keeping with Apple's usual strategy of launching iPhones in the biggest markets first -- such as the US, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the UK -- and then expanding outwards as supplies improve. This year marks the first time that China was included as a first-round country, reflecting its growing importance in Apple sales. The iPhone 5s remains in short supply even in the US however, with Apple's online store only promising shipments in "October."

    Pretty ridiculous to start with "over" and then give a very precise number. So, "over 28 countries"... that's, like, 29 countries then?
