Singapore: iPhone 4S back in store
Asia has waited patiently for the release of iPhone 4S. Last Friday, the long-coveted phone reached the shores of sunny Singapore.
The latest model went on sale at midnight Friday Singapore time, but in less than 24 hours, it was listed on Apple’s (AAPL) online store as “currently unavailable.”
Singapore would seem the perfect place for an Apple Store.
The former British colony of 5 million people on the tip of the Malay Peninsula is the world’s fifth busiest shipping port, the fourth largest financial center, the second biggest casino gambling market and first in the percentage of millionaire households.
Plus, it can’t get enough of those iPhones. The newest model went on sale at 12:00 a.m. Friday Singapore time, and by the time the sun rose in New York, according to MacRumors, it was listed on Apple’s (AAPL) online store as “currently unavailable.”
Just when Singaporeans despair over the shortage of iPhone 4S, Singtel announced this morning that the popular mobile phone is back in store.
From Singtel‘s website,
We’re happy to inform you that the iPhone 4S will generally be available at all SingTel Shops and selected SingTel Exclusive Retailers from Monday, 31 October 2011.
