Undaunted by the recent antenna dramas, Asian mobile operators have eagerly rolled out the welcome mat for Apple’s latest hit product, the iPhone 4.
 
The device goes on sale in Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Singapore this Friday and is expected to dock shortly also in China, India and South Korea.
 
Apple has sold more than 3 million of its latest smartphone since its launch a month ago in France, Britain, Germany, Japan and the US. 
 
In Singapore, SingTel’s iPhone 4 deals start from S$39 ($28.57) per month for 12GB of data, with the 32GB iPhone 4 costing S$620 vs. $480 for the 16GB model.
 
On the other end of the scale, both iPhones are free with SingTel’s most expensive $205 monthly plan which includes 30MB of data.
 
Rival M1 is offering four iPhone deals, ranging from S$36-$198 a month. Unlike SingTel, it will offer unlimited data on high-end plans. 
 
StarHub will also offer unlimited data on its most expensive S$205 monthly plan. Its cheapest plan is S$30 per month.
