Apple just announced it will reopen its SoHo store in Manhattan on July 14 at 10 a.m. EST.
The Apple Store, SoHo, is completely redesigned and better than ever. There are more than twice as many products available for you to try. A new state-of-the-art theater with extra seating is the perfect place to enjoy events and workshops. We’ve added New York’s first Briefing Room, where you can get to know our Business Team. Even the Genius Bar is bigger, so it’s easier than ever to get an appointment.
The first 3, 000 customers win free commemorative t-shirts.

Both Australia and New Zealand Online Apple Stores just went down for Black Friday updates. Here’s a pretty good idea of what’s coming. We suspect the rest of the world will shortly follow – feel free to update in the comments (Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving for those in the US!).

According to a Nikkei Business report (English), another iPhone carrier exclusive country has fallen. Softbank (in blue, above) in Japan has had a monopoly on the iPhone for the past three years in the world’s third largest economy. However, with the release of next iPhone, KDDI/au will carry the device. Both carriers still trail behind the leader NTT, as you can see in the un-translated image above.
According to the report, the iPhone will hit HDDI/au shops in November, a little later than the US expects to see them. If I’m not mistaken, KDDI operates a CDMA network, which is thought to be built into the upcoming worldphone iPhones.
This could still mean big market share gains for Apple in the country that Android hit by storm over the past two years.
KDDI’s shares were up 2.1% at Y642,000, while Softbank’s shares dropped 7.3% to Y2,413.
