Apple could be closing in on releasing iPhone in many more countries, with the latest version of the software develoment kit revealing support for many more languages.

A Computerworld report suggests support for the following languages: Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Polish, Korean and Portuguese (Brazil). These languages supplement the SDK's existing support for English, French, German, Italian and Russian.

Support for these new languages is included within the version of the iPhone SDK released to developers last week. While there are no carrier files (software designed to support an iPhone on specific networks) included alongside the new language support.

The introduction of support for Korean within the iPhone hints that Apple may debut in the Far East with a release in Korea, pending successful business deals in Japan and China.
