CUPERTINO, California - April 1, 2007 - Aplle, Inc announced today that the iPhone will be available first in Europe, and only later in USA. The first two countries where iPhone will be introduced are Spain and Portugal, quickly followed by most of the other European counties. "Europe has a much better communications infra-structure than the US", said Apple Inc CEO Streve Jobs. "Specifically, they were much faster giving us permission to sell the phone, and the providers showed much interest in selling iPhone to their clients, as they believe it will be a winner". Jobs justified the choice for Spain and Portugal with their relative small size, and remembered that Portugal invented the pre-paid mobile phone technology, and the portuguese people integrated the cellular very well in their lifestyle. Jobs revealed the european iPhone will work on the popular 3.5G standard, and expects to start selling it by the beginning of May. Pricing will be announced by then.
