No iPhone for You! – Hong Kong and China Await the Launch of the iPhone 4s

Curiously absent from Apple’s newest iPhone launch was their dates for Hong Kong and China. While Japanese iPhone fans will have access to the phone today and Singaporean consumers on the 28th of this month, no launch dates have been released for any other Asian nations.

This hasn’t stopped the rumor mill from bringing out the overzealous among us. Reports have surfaced of Iphone fans lining up outside the Hong Kong Apple Store at the IFC Mall in hopes that, for some strange reason, Apple may have just forgotten to include HK from the list.

Alas, it would seem that Apple is simply not ready to either cope with the amount of expected demand from HK and the Mainland at current production levels or they’re worried about IPR protections, which would seem odd given the decline of demand for imitation phones, with consumers instead vying for the newest branded phones, representing a real opportunity for Apple.

Either way, the wait continues, with the latest delivery dates expected by the end of the year.
