No doubt it will take some time before we see the iPhone here in NZ, we only got an iTunes store before Christmas. I believe the issue here will be finding a carrier (the iPhone runs on GMS), I guess it could be Vodafone as they currently operate a GMS network (with an upgrade to UMTS pending apparently), while Telecom NZ run CDMA. They're really the only fully fledged mobile networks here.
As for the iTV well I *hope* we get it here, unlike the phone it doesn't seem to have as many variables (i.e. carriers, networks, protocols etc) that limit it's use outside the US. Fingers crossed!

1. A lot of people don't like the carrier, Cingular Wireless;
2. It's $500!!!
3. (This is personal to me): it has a camera. Camera phones are banned in the building where I work, and I wouldn't spend that kind of money on a phone that I couldn't take to the place where I spend most of my day. (I realize, of course, that this is not an issue for most people who'd be interested in the iPhone.)
As for the Apple TV, I'm one of those thick people who don't "get" it. I play DVDs on my DVD player; I can burn DiVX files from my iMac to play on my DVD player (much cheaper to burn a few DVDs than buying an Apple TV); and we can't buy movies from the iTunes store.
What exactly is the use we can put it to?
