Apple iPhone 5S and 5C Shortages in the US may indicate that it's coming to Jamaica - How the Apple iPhone will be landing at LIME and ATL on Friday November 1st 2013

The Apple iPhone shortages worldwide continue unabated. But it’s apparently not a shortage of supply, but a part of Apple’s master plan to expand their sales to some additional countries, based on the speculation of Piper Jaffry analyst Gene Munster in the article “iPhone 5S supply in US continues to drop, says analyst”, published October 11, 2013 5:24 AM PDT by Lance Whitney, CNET News. Jamaica may be on that list to get the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C by November 2013!

To be precise, Apple is looking to expand their sales of the Apple iPhone 5S and the Apple iPhone 5C to 25 other countries come October 25th 2013 as stated in the article “iPhone 5S, 5C to land in dozens more countries on October 25”, published October 9, 2013 6:04 AM PDT by Lance Whitney, CNET News. This provides a reasonable explanation for the Supply shortages in Japan as noted in my blog article entitled “Apple iPhone 5S Shortages in Japan affecting NTT DoCoMo - Sales going to their competitors SoftBank and KDDI as Global Apple iPhone Shortages ensue”.

Currently the Apple iPhone is available in mainly First World Countries as listed in my blog article entitled “Apple has launched the Apple iPhone 5S and 5C on Tuesday September 10th 2013 - Apple iPhone Strategy is to Go Global to beat Samsung”.

Based on the Apple iPhone Press Release “iPhone 5s & iPhone 5c Arrive in Italy, Russia, Spain & More Than 25 Countries on Friday, October 25” the list of countries slated to receive the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C by Friday October 25th 2013 are:

Telecom Provider LIME has stated that the Apple iPhone is coming to Jamaica by November 2013, which seems to correlate with their comments mentioned in the article New iPhone may not be so cheap in Jamaica”, published Sunday, September 29, 2013 BY STEVEN JACKSON Business reporter, The Jamaica Observer.

The price for the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C unlocked will not be competitive with that of Samsung Galaxy smartphones, which not only has more range and variety but also cheaper prices and the interest of many Jamaicans as concluded in my blog article entitleSamsung Galaxy smartphones and Blackberrys are tops on Jamaican Searches according to Google Trends - Importation Guide to Selling smartphone to Jamaicans”.

In fact, as we get closer to Christmas 2013, more and more search traffic by Millennials (18 to 28) and Generation x (ages 29 to 45) for a gadget to buy will most likely be focused on purchasing either a smartphone from the Samsung Galaxy series or a Blackberry, now that the company has gone as stated in my Geezam blog article entitled “Blackberry sold to Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited as BBM goes free”.

But there’s strong love for the Apple iPhone in Jamaica, especially as we now have our very own official Apple dealership in the form of ATL (Automotive Traders Limited) as stated in my blog article entitled “ATL is now the Official Distributor of Apple Product in Jamaica as of July 2013 - Jamaica can now share in the innovation with Apple’s Future Products Despicable Me 2with Telecom Provider LIME as the exclusive carrier for the Apple iPhone.

Not to mention the odd fact that most of the disgruntled fans of Tessanne Chin, now famous for her appearance on The Voice” are mostly Middle Class Apple iPhone-wielding FLOW Internet Streaming and Cable watching peeps who are vexed with having to share their darling with the rest of Jamaica as concluded in my blog article entitled “Social Media backlash over Television Jamaica's decision to buy rights to NBC's The Voice - Power of the Middle Classes wielding Apple iPhones as FLOW AI is watching you”.

Stay tuned to my blog for details on the Apple iPhone launching in the Caribbean and Jamaica come November 2013!
