That Apple’s preparing a global iPhone roll-out and moving away from its present exclusive network strategy looks even clearer this morning, with news of new network deals and the disappearance of preceding iPhone models from the US and UK Apple Store.

Mobile network Singtel this morning made its own iPhone announcement, saying: “SingTel, Bharti Airtel, Globe and Optus today announced that they have signed an agreement with Apple to bring the iPhone to Singapore, India, the Philippines and Australia later this year.”

This news follows Vodafone’s announcement last week that it will introduce iPhone in India and Australia, along with eight other countries.

Singtel kept it brief, promising, “more information will be released at a later date.”
