What do Albania, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cape Verde, Chad, Congo, Fiji, Gambia, Guinea-Bissau, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritania, Micronesia, Mongolia, Mozambique, Namibia, Nepal, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Sao Tome e Principe, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Swaziland, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Zimbabwe all have in common? These nations all number among the latest places where Apple’s iOS and Mac App Stores are open for business.

Although developers do have to sign off on an updated version of their agreement with the mothership, everything else is handled by our friends in Cupertino or their duly appointed representatives — pretty cool how that works.

That said, the App Stors are now open in 155 countries and territories around our little planet. Further, as CEO Tim Cook pointed out in his WWDC keynote address, the punchline is that more than 400 million people have entrusted Apple with their credit card data and that means a lot of potential sales.

Though you will probably never go to Bhutan (looks really cool), you can sell apps there…

What’s your take?
