On March 14th, Apple and O2 will be launching the superstar handset on the emerald isles, and most everyone is pretty thrilled by the news.
Well, everyone except the Gadgetroos over at Gizmodo Australia, who wonder why Apple has yet to take the iPhone down under:
"For those of you not up to date with your geography and population statistics, According to Google, Ireland has an estimated population of 4,109,086 as at July 2007" they note.
"Australia, on the other hand, has an estimated population of 20,434,176. That's roughly five times the population of Ireland, which in my head equates to roughly five times the number of iPhones Apple could sell if they hurried up and released the iPhone in Australia."
