Hutchison Telecom Plans To Sell iPhone in Hong Kong, Macau Later This Year

Hutchison Telecommunications International said today that it signed an agreement with Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) to sell the iPhone in Hong Kong and Macau later this year, reports AP. The announcement follows four other deals in Asia-Pacific region, consisting of Singapore, India, the Philippines and Australia. But a deal still has not yet materialized in China, which is what everyone is really waiting for. Sounds like Hutchison may be interested in either the 2G or 3G iPhone, or both. It operates 2G and 3G networks in Hong Kong, Macau and Israel, but not its other markets, such as Indonesia, Thailand, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
