MacRumors reports today on a story on Bloomberg from Russian business newspaper RBC Daily, which says that various carriers in Russia are currently in talks with Apple about launching the iPhone 5 in Russia, maybe even as early as November. The Russian paper says that this would be “almost immediately” after Apple launches the iPhone 5 in the US, which therefore pinpoints the US launch as possibly being towards the end of October. According to the report, earlier iPhone models have taken much longer to be officially launched in Russia, which has led to a big gray market developing. As MacRumors notes, this latest news also follows on from reports that China will also be getting the iPhone 5 sooner rather than later, and as they say, this marks a change from Apple, as previously countries with big populations such as China, India and Russia have had to wait much longer than other countries to get their hands on the newest incarnation of the iPhone.
