Apple told everyone the iPhone will be available in 22 countries on July 11 but you can scrap at least one country of that list: Belgium.
The phone will be distributed by Mobistar in Belgium but Mobistar CEO Beniot Scheen told the press he's not sure they'll launch the iPhone on July 11. Scheen claims the launch of the iPhone will require lots of preparation and he also believes the middle of the summer isn't the right time to launch the phone. Mobistar doesn't want to share a launch date but it will definitely be later than July 11.
Furthermore, how much Mobistar will charge for the iPhone is still a mystery. We expect it will be much more than in other European countries as it's against the law in Belgium to sell phones with locked SIM cards.
