Picture 954 260x188 iPhone 4 to be released in 18 additional countries by the end of July

It’s official. The iPhone 4 will  be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland according to a statement from Apple.

Hopefully by then all antenna issues will be resolved and the ability to make a phone call will become an exciting new feature of this new phone.

Apple is reportedly to release an OS update today to(hopefully) fix issues relating to the reception issues.

In the mean time, reports of a iPhone 4 recall are completely false but spreading after the DailyMail published a story based entirely on a tweet from a parody Steve Jobs twitter account.
