Singapore to join regions with multiple iPhone carriers

updated 11:55 am EDT, Wed October 14, 2009

New sales through M1

Local company M1 is set to become Singapore's second official iPhone carrier, according to an announcement. A deal is said to have recently been forged with Apple, though no details are yet available on phone prices or subscription rates. A launch should occur sometime before the end of 2009.

At present, Singaporeans can only officially buy an iPhone from SingTel, which has held the rights since the introduction of the iPhone 3G in 2008. The carrier's iPhone 3GS launch was one of the most enthusiastic worldwide, in spite of a global recession and comparatively minor upgrades to the device's hardware. Apple has worked to expand the number of countries with multiple iPhone carriers however, deepening potential sales while also setting the stage for lower fees driven by competition.
