On 11 November, iPhone 4S will go on sale in an additional 15 countries, almost a week after its expansion to 29 countries around the world. Apple confirmed by the end of the year iPhone 4S will be available in more than 70 countries.
Beginning Friday 11 November, the iPhone 4S will be available in Albania, Armenia, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Malta, Montenegro, New Zealand, Panama, Poland, Portugal, Romania and South Korea.

While Apple hasn’t announced exact prices for each of these countries, New Zealanders will pay a recommended retail price of NZD$1,049 inc GST for the 16GB model, NZD$1,199 inc GST for the 32GB model and NZD$1,349 inc GST for the new 64GB model.

The addition of these 15 countries will bring Apple’s total to 44 around the world, more than halfway to the company’s announced goal of more than 70 countries by the end of the year. Last month, in Apple’s quarterly financial conference call, Apple CEO Tim Cook said that the company expects to set an iPhone sales record in the current quarter.
