Default iPhone coming to Singapore

Continuing Apple's intended iPhone expansion throughout Asia in 2008,
Channel News Asia claims that a deal has been signed between Singapore
Communications (also known as Siangtel) with Apple to carry the iPhone
in Singapore this September.

Though neither company has commented on the deal, the move could make
Singapore the first country in Asia to carry the iPhone, ahead of even
prominent nations such as Japan, Thailand or even China.
Currently a city-state as opposed to a country, Singapore boasts about
4.6 million inhabitants.

The exact number of SingTel customers subscribed to SingTel is currently
unknown, although the deal beats out rival wireless carrier StarHub.
Apple is known to insist on revenue-sharing agreements with carriers,
something that bleeds their income and is not asked for by any other
phone maker.

Current estimates that state that Singaporeans have already bought some
10,000 foreign iPhones to unlock, paying as much as $1,000 SGD ($719 US)
for the luxury.

There is also reports of iPhone job adverts in Australia (at Telstra
phone company I think it was).
