iPhone 3G in Hong Kong (only in the New Territories?)

So I was watching some clips from Job’s WWDC keynote yesterday, and I saw that the iPhone 3G will be released in Hong Kong, one of the 77 countries (markets?) where Apple will be selling the new phone.

That’s all well and good, but let’s look at the close up:

Hong Kong island, Kowloon, and Lantau Island are totally missing.

For those not in the know, here’s a map of Hong Kong:

It’s disappointing that even a supposedly ‘classy’ joint like Apple gets simple things like this (ahem, geography) wrong.

Another case in point: CNN and France.

    Fortunally I live in New Territories, so I can get a iPhone 3G. ;)

    ummm also did you notice there is no Greenland and Iceland – hahaa awwwww.

  3. DM:

    What the hell is up with the map of Europe? It looks like a giant blob with a shadow under it.

  4. Bathrobe:

    Geography is obviously too nerdy for cool people like Apple. Pointing out that Hong Kong is more than just the New Territories is definitely uncool.
