3 to carry iPhone in Hong Kong, Macau

iPhone for Hong Kong Macau

Hutchison, parent company of cellular provider 3, today said it has signed a deal with Apple to carry the iPhone in Hong Kong and Macau. As with agreements struck in recent weeks, Hutchison doesn't provide specifics and says only that it will offer the iPhone sometime "later this year." The introduction is the first for Chinese-owned territories and the first for 3, whose coverage area includes parts of Europe already addressed by other iPhone carriers.

Most observers expect further details of the launch to be made clear at next month's Worldwide Developer Conference, when Apple is likely to announce a 3G-capable iPhone for an international launch.

    international launch

    They've already had an international launch.

    And another phone company coming out saying "No, look at us! We'll have the iPhone!" Is there some reason why Apple is so quiet on their dealings?
