Apple Wins, Telcos Being Grabbed Where It Hurts


If what’s currently happening in Hong Kong, Australia and Singapore is any indication – the days of Apple having to bow to exclusivity demands from Telcos are over. Today, StarHub of Singapore announced they will start to offer iPhone 3Gs by the end of the year. This came one month after M1 made the announcement on October 13th. So, this brings us back to the post I made back in 1st October on Celcom launching it’s iPhone 3Gs by January 2010. From the look of things, it may be a reliable source afterall. Maxis’s monopoly and 1-month waiting period for the iPhone 3Gs will soon be a thing of the past. A past that every iPhone 3GS user in Malaysia would gladly choose to forget. Apple, 1. Telcos, ouch!
