iPhone Risk: Australasian Explosion

iPhone Risk adds the Philippines

Thanks to eagle-eyed reader Janric for the tip:

Globe's Head for Consumer Wireless Business Ferdinand Dela Cruz announced today that Globe, SingTel, Bharti Airtel, and Optus have signed an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone to the Philippines, Singapore, India, and Australia later this year.

Philippines is new, Singapore is now confirmed, and given that Vodafone has already announced Australia and India, this would make it the second and third confirmed non-exclusive territories after Italy.

Score board says:

  Europe North Am. South Am Asia Africa Oceania Antarctica Total

Okay folks, who's next?
