The iPhone is preparing itself to duplicate and propagate further, after the French company “Orange” announced it had worked up deals for many new countries. With the iPhone's popularity, growth of the user base in Europe has been stymied by it being introduced in only a few countries, leaving a huge market unavailable to Apple. Now, the company will be able to add Austria, Belgium, Switzerland, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Portugal, Egypt, Jordan and the Dominican Republic to the list of iPhone-toting countries.
Every month that goes by sees another handful of countries added to the same list as well, leaving Apple in a curious position of having a single device available all over the world. Five million sold might have been a milestone six months ago, but a year from now they could feasibly be celebrating 10 times that much in sales. Larger mobile providers like Nokia might change their stance on the iPhone in the coming years if the trend continues.
