iPhone lands on five more US regional carriers today, iPad launching in 12 more countries

As we mentioned earlier this month, the iPhone launches on five additional regional carriers today: ALASKA COMMUNICATIONSCELLCOM, MTA SOLUTIONS, GCI, and  APPALACHIAN WIRELESS. Regional carriers allow residents in more rural areas to use the iPhone without any service disruption and actually pay a little less for the device.
