So the key number here is 11.11.11! Since iPhone 4S will be available in 15 more countries by Nov. 11, 2011 and you can start placing your pre-order as early as Nov. 4, 2011. Those 15 countries are Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea.
Sadly pre-order is not available for people living in Albania, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malta, Montenegro and Panama, also China which is considered as one of the largest mobile market is no where in sight, though I’m sure it won’t be long until we hear some news about them.
To date iPhone 4S is already available in 29 countries around the world and Apple plans to make it available in more than 70 countries before the year end. But I’m pretty sure the iPhone 4S is already available in the “grey-market” for countries that are not listed by Apple, they’re just more expensive than usual.
Full PR after the break.
