Taiwan's Chunghwa aims at iPad, next-gen iPhone

updated 01:45 pm EDT, Fri June 4, 2010

Already in talks with Apple, says chairman

Chunghwa Telecom is currently looking at getting the iPad into Taiwan, according to the carrier's chairman, Lu Shyue-ching. Speaking with Reuters at the Computex PC expo, Shyue-ching says his company is "still talking" to Apple, and working "actively" at getting sales started. There is indeed a local demand for pure media consumption devices like the iPad, the chairman argues.

The carrier is also planning to pursue the next-generation iPhone, which should be announced on June 7th. The iPhone 3GS is already available through three carriers in Taiwan, including Chunghwa. "Customers are giving us good feedback," says Shyue-ching. "Sales of the iPhone are going as expected, and right now, things are picking up."

Apple has not yet announced plans to sell the iPad in Taiwan. The device is currently available only in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US. A second wave of launches, coming in July, will include Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore.
