iPhone graphic: Apple's new map of the world

May 9, 2008: 9:09 AM ET

[UPDATE: Below the fold, CdnPhoto's latest version of the map, with Spain and Poland removed because they are still at the rumor stage.]

Like many Apple (AAPL) watchers, the investors at IMO's Apple Finance Forum have been closely following this week's flurry of announcements of iPhone deals with carriers around the world. One of the contributors to the forum -- a regular from Toronto who posts as CdnPhoto -- has summarized the information graphically in a color-coded map of the world. With his permission, I've pasted it below.

Countries where the iPhone is now available, or will be this summer, are marked in red:

Switzerland, Spain and Poland probably should be tinted a light shade of pink; these were rumors, not official announcements (see here).

Of course, if unlocked blackmarket iPhones were included, most of the world would be colored Apple red. See The iPhones of Equatorial Guinea.
