Apple’s purported plans for Asia and Europe have been widely reported, now new evidence suggests the company has a plan to launch the device across Latin America – offering its device through multiple carriers.
It’s just the latest in a growing body of evidence that proves Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer really was not joking when he said the company is “not wedded to any particular way to go to market.”
Speaking in March this year, Oppenheimer also added: “Our objective is to drive scale and take market share. We’re going to enter more European countries this year, and Asia, and we remain very confident about our goal of reaching 10 million iPhones shipped in 2008.”
Add Latin America to the list, where Spanish language newspaper, Cinco Dias reports Apple’s mulling plans to offer iPhones unlocked through multiple carriers. We also noted last month that Mexico is likely to be in on the fun.
We note the urgency of rumours surrounding Apple’s plans to widen iPhone availability by entering different countries continues to grow, leading us to consider it possible a batch of new territories will be announced along with the new model iPhone in June.
