SingTel to get iPhone by year end

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 11, 2008

The latest version of the much-hyped iPhone unveiled by Apple boss Steve Jobs in the United States on Monday will be on sale here within the next few months, and probably at half the price of the original.

This will cheer Singapore’s phone and gadget fans, who are still unable to buy the original iPhone a year after its high-profile launch.

SingTel announced on Tuesday that it will be the first operator here to launch the new version, which is faster and boasts more features, but said it would only be on the shelves ‘later this year’.

In a statement, SingTel’s executive vice-president Quek Peck Leng said that the mobile operator is ‘pleased … to be the first mobile operator in Singapore to launch’ the device.

Apple had announced that buyers in 22 markets, including the United States and Australia, will get their chance to check out the iPhone 3G on July 11. (story)
