Apple in negotiations over Thai iPhone launch

Apple is in talks with Thailand’s Advanced Info Service about the iPhone’s launch in the country, according to a statement made by an AIS executive. “We are negotiating on details, including a revenue sharing standard. Apple needs a local operator to promote iPhone,” said Prattana Leelapanang, assistant vice president for Advanced Info Service’s wireless business marketing. Leelapanang gave no details of when the talks might be completed. AIS has 24.5 million wireless customers, representing about half of the Thai cellular market; Apple has previously said that it plans to launch the iPhone in Asia sometime in 2008.
