iPhone With SingTel
International carrier SingTel today revealed itself as the next iPhone provider. The carrier will offer the device in the company's native Singapore and will also supply the phone through three of its international providers, including Bharti Airtel for India, Globe in the Philippines, and Optus in Australia. As with other recent announcements, SingTel declines to provide details and says only that it will sell the iPhone "later this year."
The news confirms multi-carrier deals in Australia and India, which are already being serviced by Vodafone. Most predictions have Apple introducing the iPhone to all new territories with a new 3G model which should both appeal to a wider audience as well as provide greater compatibility with international phone networks.
