iPhone To Be Available in Singapore (SingTel), India (Bharti Airtel) , Australia (Optus) and the Philippines (Globe Telecom)

Reuters has reported that the iPhone will be coming late this year to Singapore, India, Australia and the Philippines...

Here's the Reuters report:

Apple has signed deals to bring the iPhone to four Asian countries later this year, which should help the company surpass its sales goal of 10 million units by the end of 2008.

Agreements with Singapore's Singapore Telecommunications Ltd and three of its affiliates will bring the iPhone to Singapore, India, the Philippines and Australia, SingTel and Apple said.

Bharti Airtel Ltd, India's top mobile operator, will carry the iPhone in the world's fastest-growing wireless market, which already has more than 260 million mobile users. SingTel owns more than 30 percent of Bharti Airtel.

SingTel unit Optus will offer the iPhone in Australia, and Globe Telecom will be the Philippine partner. Globe Telecom is owned by SingTel and domestic conglomerate Ayala Corp.

An Apple spokeswoman said the iPhone would make its debut in those countries "later this year," and declined to comment on plans to bring the iPhone to Japan and China.

In its quarter ended March 31, the company sold 1.7 million of the devices, which combine a mobile phone, iPod media player and Web surfing; Apple's goal is to sell 10 million iPhones by year's end.
