iPhone 3G not really coming to 70 countries on July 11th worldwide rollout

Apple announced that the next-generation iPhone would be released worldwide on July 11th of this year. However, the July 11th rollout does not include a large percentage of the officially supported countries, and in fact only 22 will actually be getting the iPhone 3G on that fateful day.

So while you are very happy to learn about the existence of the 3G iPhone as per WWDC 2008, have a gander at its list of officially supported countries to confirm if yours is really included in the list. Also, see of your country is listed above the fold (as part of those who will get it on July 11th) and below (all the other countries that will not).
