Total Access Communication (TAC), the second-largest mobile firm in Thailand, is preparing to offer the iPhone in the Thai market. Citing an industry source, Reuters reports that the Telnor-controlled TAC will be the second provider to offer the iPhone in region, following smaller rival True Move PCL, which began selling the iPhone in Thailand in January 2009. “[TAC] have prepared some work on websites and it should be for sale within one month from now,” the source said. Current carrier True has said it sold roughly 100,000 iPhone in 2009 with expectations to sell another 120,000 in 2010; TAC’s larger rival Advanced Info Service said it was still investigating ways to offer the iPhone in the Thai market after failing to reach a deal with Apple.
