Globe will start selling the iPhone in the Philippines later this year. A source with the company said the units will likely be marketed by end of September or early October.
Globe, SingTel, Bharti Airtel and Optus have signed an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone to the Philippines, Singapore, India and Australia, according to a brief statement released by the company.
There aren’t details yet on how the units will be marketed.
But costumers will likely have to sign up to a monthly plan that will lock them into Globe for a year or two.
With all the hype that surrounds the iPhone, the agreement with Apple is a marketing coup for Globe.
