Almost Everyone when talking about 3G Mobile phones. First choice is Apple's iPhone. Myself i would like to buy One but I better wait until Price will go down. you can also read my last post Apple Ipod Touch . Crazy about iPhones are in high tempreture but Thailand's Local Apple store haven't lunch iPhone yet . But don't worry we can buy many smuggled iPhone set in Market . Accordings to chief marketing officer of Singtel Sanchai Thiewprasertkul estimates that some 60,000 iPhones have been smuggled into Thailand and they are being sold for about THB 22,000. and now price is going down to iPhone 1.1.3 8 GB is only for 19000bhat and 16 GB is about 24000 bhat . Plz see MOBILE EXPO 2008 . This is just only in market price but i am wonder when iPhone officially launched in Thailand. I did search and found this in Telecom paper .

The Thai mobile operator Advanced Info Service (AIS), together with parent
SingTel, is in talks with Apple on launching the iPhone in Thailand. Ais,
together with SingTel and Australian mobile operator Optus (a SingTel company)
is discussing phone volumes, marketing terms and partnerships, chief marketing
officer Sanchai Thiewprasertkul told the Bangkok Post. An agreement has not yet
been reached as Apple's revenue sharing condition is not likely to work in
Thailand, Sanchai said. The company offers airtime at THB 1 per minute and this
would make it impossible to share revenues with Apple. Furthermore, some 90
percent of mobile users are prepaid, the marketing officer said.

So I hope very soon we can use iPhones in thailand, which officially lunched for thailand.
