M1 started taking “orders for the iPhone 4″:http://m1.com.sg/iPhone/order.jsp just a few minutes ago after 11am. From the form, we can see that M1 will have four collection points on 30 July – Plaza Singapura, Tampines Mall, West Mall and Paragon – which probably is a good thing as it decentralize the collection points and there might be shorter queues for customers. According to “Ivan”:http://twitter.com/ivan98z/status/19709043523 – the form will also check for inventory as you make the orders so you won’t be disappointed – smart move.
Update – 2pm and without fail – the pre-order page for SingTel fails to launch. Don’t they ever learn?
SingTel will do their pre-order, they call it “purchase appointment”:https://www.singtelshop.com/iphone4_appt/ at 2pm today.
Starhub meanwhile has not “disclose any plans”:http://iphone.starhub.com/iphone4/ about the iPhone 4 launch except pricing.
