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. The carriers will offer the iPhone 4s for $50 less than the big boys will, and they will offer the iPhone 4 for $99. You can grab the iPhone over at these carriers at their retail stores later this morning or on their respective websites starting shortly. Check out a few of the plans after the break.

Furthermore, the third-generation iPad is also currently launching in South Korea, Croatia, Brunei, Cyprus, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Panama, St Maarten, Venezuela, and Uruguay today. Is anyone lining up?
