SingTel, others announce iPhone carrier deals

Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel), Bharti Airtel, Globe Telecom, and SingTel subsidiary Optus have announced they have reached deals with Apple to offer the iPhone in their respective markets later in 2008. SingTel will offer the phone in Singapore, Bharti Airtel in India, Globe Telecom in the Philippines, and Optus in Australia. The announcement of Bharti in India and Optus in Australia also makes these the second and third confirmed non-exclusive iPhone country carriers, behind Telecom Italia Mobile in Italy, as Vodafone will offer the handset in all three markets later this year. StarHub, Singapore’s second-largest telecom firm behind SingTel, said it expects all three mobile operators in the area — SingTel, StarHub and MobileOne — to be offering the phone by the end of the year.
