Vodafone announced that they signed an agreement with Apple to sell the iPhone starting in ten of it’s markets. Which includes Egypt, Australia, the Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, India, Portugal, New Zealand, South Africa and Turkey. This is in fact the first official announcement of an iPhone release in the Middle East. With rumors of Chinese hand recognition do we expect to see full Arabic first party support directly from Apple? or will they just sell it with
English and expect the Egyptian customers to accept that? They have been doing this for the iPods for a few years now and no Arabic support was introduced for the iPod. [Via MarketWatch] Update: Vodafone’s press release.
