Probably apple is having more proffit in iPod sales & they might not be interested in the introduction of the Iphone at this moment.
In Puerto Rico almost everyone owns one. $ Range 149.00 - $389.00
Now the iTouch is picking Up. $289 - $389
There's no Apple Store, but they are doing good business.
You can buy them on Puerto Rico Native Stores Like: Radio Shack, Sam's Club, COSTCO, Sears,Circuit City, Best Buy and many others. I'm going to give you an ADVISE: DON'T BUY ANY APPLE PRODUCTS for 6 months & sit back to see the results.
This only matters to all countries where the iPhone WORKs & is not in that market.
