Isn't it generally the case that companies roll out their products regionally first? My understanding is that this is so that any QC issues can be ironed out more easily and cheaply. Then, once that's all settled, they roll out to more far-flung markets with a better prediction of the sort of return and warranty costs they will face. They may even make changes to design, packaging, or production in the meantime. Anyway, I don't mind the wait if that's the case.
