FINALLY coming to Chile! I don't get why we are left so behind in Apple's products rollouts.

I quote from Wikipedia:

"Chile is one of South America's most stable and prosperous nations,[10] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-BBC-Chile-10') leading Latin American nations in human development ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_development_(humanity)'), competitiveness, income per capita, globalization, economic freedom, and low perception of corruption.[11] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-hdrstats.undp.org-11') Since July 2013, Chile is considered by the World Bank ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Bank') as a "high-income economy ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Bank_high-income_economy')", and hence as a developed country ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developed_country').[126] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-wb-126')[127] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-:75-127')[128] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-:76-128')

Chile has the highest degree of economic freedom ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economic_freedom') in South America (ranking 7th worldwide), owing to its independent and efficient judicial system and prudent public finance management.[129] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-iefhf-129') In May 2010 Chile became the first South American country to join the OECD ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organisation_for_Economic_Co-operation_and_Development').[130] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-OECD_20100507-130') In 2006, Chile became the country with the highest nominal GDP per capita in Latin America.[131] ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chile#cite_note-131')"

And still, we are not even in the top 100 countries that apple gives priority to deliver their products. LAME!

Get the stainless one, my South African friends. I originally bought the aluminum but recently sold it on swappa and bought a stainless one. Stainless steel is just so much more attractive and substantial feeling.
