Russia Expected to Get iPhone 5 Right After The US
Russia may be among the first nations on earth that Apple's iPhone 5 looks to conquer upon its release this fall.
According to a new report from Bloomberg, which gleans its insights from an RBC Daily report, Apple is reportedly on track to introduce the iPhone 5 in Russia, possibly as early as November, just weeks after the fifth generation device is expected to drop in the US.
"Russian cellphone operators are in talks with Apple about speeding up deliveries, as previous iPhone versions were introduced in Russia much later than in the U.S., causing a large volume of unauthorized sales," the initial RBC report reads (once translated, that is).
As it now stands, there's an excellent possibility that the iPhone 5 will debut in the US this September, followed by China in October, and Russia in November (not to mention countless other, smaller markets tossed into the mix along the way).
